Nacogdoches, TX (July 14, 2023) – On July 12, the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to the scene of a major crash just south of Garrison that claimed one person’s life.
At around 10:10 p.m., a 2006 Peterbilt truck tractor-trailer collided head-on with a 2018 Dodge SUV while traveling on US Highway 59. The crash caused the semi-truck to burst into flames.
The truck driver, a 46-year-old man from Coushatta, Louisiana, was transported to Nacogdoches Medical Center for emergency treatment.
The Dodge’s driver was transported to a medical facility in Tyler for emergency care. A passenger in the Dodge died after being ejected from the vehicle. Neither victim has been publicly identified.
The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating the accident at this time.
We hope the two injured parties recover quickly.
