Fatal Traffic Accident on Gulfway Drive in Port Arthur

The Port Arthur Police Department reports a major accident occurred at approximately 6:53 a.m. in the 3800 block of Gulfway Drive. 

According to officers responding at the scene, witnesses advised they saw a tan Buick heading eastbound at a high rate of speed and lose control of the vehicle striking an electrical pole.

There were four people inside the vehicle and one of them was fatally injured.  Police say the other three people are in stable condition. 

The accident is currently under investigation by the Port Arthur Criminal Investigation division.

Rollover sends 5 people to the hospital

At approximately 5:25pm, there was a one vehicle crash on Interstate 10 at mile marker 836 in Jefferson County.

A 2008 Pontiac passenger vehicle was traveling eastbound on Interstate 10 when the driver lost control.  The vehicle rolled over several times before coming to rest.  It appears that the driver may have fallen asleep behind the wheel.

The driver, Lakoa McKeever, 31 of Beaumont, and three minor children were transported to St . Elizabeth hospital with non life-threatening injuries.  A fourth child was flown by medical helicopter to Hermann Memorial Hospital in Houston.  The extent of that child's injuries are unknown.  All occupants were properly secured by seat belts.

There are no further details to be released.

KFDM learns new exclusive details of fatal alligator attack in Adams Bayou in Orange County

ORANGE COUNTY - By Scott Lawrence

Update: Police in Orange tell KFDM News the victim of the fatal alligator attack has been identified as Tommie Woodward, 28, of Orange.

KFDM News has learned exclusive new details about a fatal alligator attack in Orange County. James Ware reported on the exclusive information during a live report on the KFDM Morning NEWS.

Watch KFDM News at noon, 5, 6 and 10 and Fox 4 and 5:30 and 9, and stay with for updates.

Police in Orange say they responded to a report of an alligator attack at about 2:30 a.m. Friday at Burkart's Marina on Adams Bayou, off Mississippi Street in Orange.

Police say witnesses at the scene told them a 28-year-old man was attacked by a large alligator. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene with a boat along with a Game Warden from Texas Parks and Wildlife.  The man's body was located at about 4:30 a.m. not far from the area where he was attacked.

Justice of the Peace Rodney Price responded and ordered an autopsy.        

In an exclusive live interview with the KFDM morning shows, Judge Price told us according to information he received, a man and woman were standing on a landing at the dock. He said the man took off his shirt and shoes and someone warned him not to jump in and swim. The judge says there's a sign that says 'No Swimming: Alligators.' The judge says the man jumped in anyway and was immediately attacked by a large gator. The judge told us the woman jumped in when the man screamed for help, and she felt something brush against her. The judge says it was likely the alligator's tail. She wasn't hurt.

State Game Warden Mike Boone tells KFDM News it's the first fatal alligator attack he knows of in Texas. He's been a Game Warden more than 22 years.

Gator Country owner Gary Saurage tells KFDM News it's the first fatal alligator attack in Texas that he knows of this year.
