News Release
Tuesday, July 10, 2018

On Monday, July 9, 2018, Galveston County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to an auto/ pedestrian accident in the 3800 block of State Highway 146 at approximately 9:13pm. According to the driver, a white male was walking in the roadway south bound on the wrong side of the roadway. The driver was unable to see the pedestrian due to poor lighting. The driver stopped to render aid and flagged down a passing Deputy. EMS was summoned immediately and began life saving measures. Unfortunately, upon being transported to Clear Lake ER, the subject was pronounced deceased.

The victim is identified as Jeremiah Eli Esty, 33 years of age, and was reportedly a transient in the Bacliff area. The driver of the truck voluntarily submitted to a battery of tests, including a blood draw and a breathalyzer. Results of the blood draw are pending, but at the time of this report, impairment is not believed to have been a factor.
