One man is dead following an accident with an 18-wheeler truck on State Highway 202 Wednesday near Refugio, Texas.
According to Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Nathan Brandley, 28-year-old Lyndon Dean (of Victoria) was traveling eastbound on TX-202, nine miles west of Refugio, when his 2015 Chevy pickup was struck head-on by an out-of-control 18-wheeler just before 12:00 p.m. “Because of wet weather, the [tractor trailer] jackknifed and slid down into the road,” said Brandley.
Lyndon Dean, the driver of the pickup, was unfortunately pronounced dead at the scene by a Justice of the Peace. The 42-year-old driver of the semi-truck was transported by air ambulance (Halo-Flight) to Christus Spohn Hospital Shoreline in Corpus Christi for treatment.
This fatal truck accident is still under investigation, and we will update this story as more information is released.
