Beaumont, TX (January 13, 2022) – An auto accident reported on Tuesday evening in the Beaumont area claimed one man’s life. Just before 11:30 p.m., on January 11, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on East Cardinal Drive.
Reports from the Beaumont Police show that 39-year-old Ryan Foster was traveling south on East Cardinal Drive in a Ford F-150. As he passed through the 300 block of the roadway, the truck became involved in a collision with a second vehicle. The impact of the crash caused Foster to lose control of his vehicle and travel into a grassy median.
Foster was ejected from his vehicle. He was severely injured in the accident and rushed to St Elizabeth Hospital. Authorities confirmed that he passed away after arriving.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Ryan Foster. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
