On October 23, 2018, a bus accident in Freeport killed a Texas pipefitter and sent 30 others to the hospital with serious injuries.

Around 3pm a busload of employees from the Zachry Construction Corporation were being transported from an industrial plant back to their vehicles in a nearby parking lot. The bus was traveling near Highway 36 and 288 when, while switching lanes, the driver lost control. The vehicle fishtailed and flipped multiple times, finally come to rest in a ditch full of water.

Freeport Police Department identified a 29-year old Aaron Green as the pipefitter who died in the crash. He was from Dayton, Texas.

The Zachry Group issued the following statement:

We suffered a tremendous loss this afternoon and our most sincere condolences are with the family of our employee who was fatally injured. We had several employees transported to medical facilities in the Brazosport and Houston area and our full attention is on the care they are receiving and their welfare.

The 30 injured workers were taken to local hospitals for treatment. Police are still investigating.
