DICKINSON — A 70-year-old man suffered life-threatening injuries in a three-car accident in Dickinson on Monday afternoon and was flown to the hospital, police said.

The man was driving north on FM 646 near the Dickinson Bayou bridge shortly after 4 p.m. when his Lincoln Town Car veered into the southbound lane and collided head-on with a sport utility vehicle and clipped a minivan, Dickinson police Sgt. James Johnson said.

Passengers in the vehicle struck directly by the town car were transported to the University of Texas Medical Branch to be treated for non life-threatening injuries, and the occupants of the third vehicle were uninjured, Johnson said.

Crews had to cut the town car to remove the 70-year-old man, who was taken by air ambulance to the Hermann Memorial Hospital in Houston, Johnson said.

His condition wasn’t immediately known Monday night.

The accident shut down both lanes of traffic on FM 646 for a little more than three hours.
