CLUTE — One person was killed and two others were injured in a crash that shut down FM 523 two miles west of Clute early Saturday morning.

At about 5:45 a.m., Los Fresnos resident Aaron Castillo, 29, was driving northbound on FM 523 in a 2012 Cadillac 500 model, Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Stephen Woodard said. Traveling around a curve, the Cadillac skidded and collided with a Ford F-350 traveling southbound on the same road, Woodard said.

“The driver of the Cadillac died upon impact … (and) was pronounced dead at the scene,” Woodard said.

The driver of the F-350 was a 43-year-old Angleton man. There was an 11-year-old boy in the car with him, Woodard said. Clute EMS transported both people to CHI St. Luke’s Health Brazosport in Lake Jackson for medical treatment, he said.

“Nonthreatening injuries for both,” he said.

Mutual aid was received from the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office, Woodard said.

The road reopened after about two hours. The investigation is ongoing.
