Identity of dump truck driver killed in wreck released

LINDALE, TX (KLTV) - An accident on FM 16 leaves a Holly Lake Ranch man dead after his dump truck overturns into a creek bed.

According to DPS, Glen Mclain was turning onto FM 16 from County Road 498 and did not see a dump truck coming over the hill because the sun was in his eyes.

The dump truck struck the pick up truck Mclain was driving and spun it around. The dump truck then lost control and ran off the roadway hitting a creek embankment.

The driver of the dump truck, 62-year-old, Terry Grant from Holly Lake Ranch, was ejected from the vehicle.

Grant was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.
