Shelby County, TX – 2 Killed in Fatal Vehicle Accident on U.S. 59

Shelby County, TX (July 28, 2019) On the morning of July 28th, a fatal vehicle accident happened on U.S. 59, about one mile north of Timpson. A semi-truck that was unable to control its speed rear-ended the back of a passenger vehicle that was traveling northbound in the outside lane of the highway. The accident took place at around 11:45 a.m.

When emergency responders arrived at the scene, they found two occupants inside of the passenger vehicle with fatal injuries. They have been identified as 62-year-old Yolanda Enene and 80-year-old Joyce Bryan. The driver of the semi-truck, 28-year-old Yakul Snoi, did not sustain injuries.

The authorities are currently investigating the collision to determine fault and liability.

Our thoughts are with the families of Yolanda Enene and Joyce Bryan at this time.

Car and Truck Accidents in Texas

Sadly, over 500,000 truck accidents occur throughout the nation every single year. There are different causes of truck accidents, but the most common causes are distracted driving, fatigued driving, and malfunctioning auto parts. Sometimes bad roads can trigger a major collision.
