A 38-year-old Damon man was killed in a one-vehicle accident early Tuesday morning, the Texas Department of Public Safety reported.

Jonathan Allen Elster was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado north on FM 442 near Needville around 1 a.m. when it crossed into the southbound lane and went into a ditch, a trooper reported.

The truck hit a culvert that sent it airborne and hit a tree, the Trooper added.

Elster was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash by the Fort Bend County Medical Examiner’s Office.

This crash remains under investigation, and further details are not available at this time.
