Posted on Monday, February 25th, 2019 at 2:45 am    

At least one person sustained injuries in a car accident on U.S. Highway 59 near Tenaha, last Tuesday.

At around 1:30 p.m., Texas Department of Public Safety troopers were requested at Highway 59 near County Road 2624 after receiving a report of a multi-vehicle collision. According to initial reports, a 2016 GMC pickup truck was traveling along the southbound lanes of the highway when it failed to negotiate its speed and rear-ended a 2018 Freightliner truck heading on the same direction.

The impact of the collision injured pickup truck driver, Leonard McGee, 26, of Joaquin. McGee was the rushed to Nacogdoches hospital for treatment. The extent of his injuries were not immediately released by local authorities.

Fortunately, the driver of the 18-wheeler truck did not sustain any injury. He was not identified by DPS officials.

The crash remains under investigation.

We hope for a speedy recovery of the injured victim, Leonard McGee.

According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of every day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. That is roughly about 6 million car accidents every year and 90 people dying in car accidents every day in the U.S. alone. Driving while distracted, under the influence of alcohol, and at an unsafe speed are three most common causes of car accidents.
