Police on Thursday identified a Beaumont man killed in a Wednesday crash on U.S. 69 in Lumberton as 47-year-old Robert Dale Powers.
According to officers at the scene, the crash happened at 9 a.m. near Jordan Drive.
The accident involved a Lexus sedan and a big rig.
Powers, the driver of the Lexus, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the 18-wheeler was not injured, according to Lumberton Fire Chief Robert Simonson.
Lumberton Police Chief Danny Sullins said said he did not believe speed was a factor in the crash. He speculated that Powers swerved out of his lane for an unknown reason into on-coming traffic.
