One man died and another was injured in a domino-effect accident involving three vehicles on U.S. Highway 69 near Colmesneil in Tyler County on July 16. A third person involved in the crash was not injured. Authorities say all three drivers were wearing seatbelts at the time of the incident.
The Texas Department of Public Safety reports that the accident happened in the early afternoon when a northbound Dodge Ram slowed to make a left turn into a private driveway and was rear-ended by a Chevrolet Silverado. This initial impact pushed the Dodge Ram into southbound traffic where it was hit by a Chevrolet pickup truck.
