HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – A man who witnessed a horrific crash that claimed the life of a 22-month-old in east Harris County recanted the moments he saw the cement truck falling off an overpass, eventually landing on a family’s vehicle.

Raymond Romo, who works near the Beltway 8 and Woodforest intersection where the crash took place, said he saw when the cement truck driver swerved on the highway to avoid another driver before crashing through the concrete barrier on Friday afternoon.

Romo said the cement truck was hanging off the overpass while cars below attempted to move.

As he ran out of his place of business, the truck fell forward, landing on top of a Ford Expedition that reportedly had a family of four inside.

Romo, who says he’s also a father, rushed to the crash and immediately attempted to pull the individuals out.

“We saw it when we were in the middle of the parking lot land on the vehicle,” Romo said. “Instantly, me and my friend Joe, we went into action.”

Romo said his first thought was to pull the driver’s daughter out of the vehicle.

After that, he said he then tried to extract the babies, who were 22-month-old twins, out of the back seat.
