PORT BOLIVAR — A Port Bolivar man was killed Wednesday night when he was ejected from his truck in a rollover accident on the beach near Loop 108, authorities said.
Eric Clark, 24, died of blunt force trauma at the scene of the accident shortly before 7 p.m., according to the Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Clark was driving recklessly and “doing donuts” in the vehicle before the truck rolled over near Retillion Road and the beach in Port Bolivar, Capt. Mike Benavides of the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office said.
Clark was “partially ejected” from the truck, Lt. Tracy Keele said.
No other vehicles were involved in the accident, Keele said.
There were two passengers in the truck, an 18-year-old Crystal Beach woman and a 24-year-old Bogata woman, according to the accident report.
One passenger was treated for minor injuries at the scene of the accident and later released, and the other woman was transported by helicopter to the University of Texas Medical Branch, Keele said.
The woman was not listed as a patient at the hospital on Thursday afternoon, a spokeswoman for UTMB said.
Keele did not know her medical condition Thursday.
