On Sunday July 8, 2018 at about 5:10 pm, a Dodge Ram, driven by Kelton Dillard, age 81, from Dallas, attempted to change lanes, when a Red Honda Civic started to pull ahead of him. The pickup collided with the left rear of the red Civic causing it to spin out of control into the westbound lanes of travel. The red Civic then collided with a silver Civic driven by Armando Raul Gines-Galan, age 37, from Independence.
Both Gines-Galan and his passenger were transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.
The operator of the red Honda Civic sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
