Man injured in wreck that closed Hwy 79 bridge, has died

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - A man that was injured in a serious crash last week, has died.

Edwin Patrick Dolan III was driving the Honda Civic that collided with an oversized load on the Neches River Bridge last Tuesday, closing the bridge for several hours.

The oversized load was transporting a 150 ton presser when Dolan attempted to pass it on the bridge and clipped the trailer's steer bar, causing the trailer to drag the Honda along the guardrail until it eventually gave away.

Mr. Dolan was transported by ambulance to a Palestine hospital, then air lifted to a Tyler hospital where he later died.
