Investigators Do Not Know What Caused Fatality

Accident investigators are still trying to figure out what led to a deadly head-on collision on Troup Highway yesterday.

It killed a child and two adults. Three more people were injured in the accident, just south of Tyler in front of Pleasant Hills Baptist Church.

The accident claimed the lives of one driver, Arthur Boen, Jr., 68, and his passengers, James David Joyce, 45, and Stephanie Frye, 12.

Of two other passengers injured, one is in critical condition, the other is in good condition. The driver of the other vehicle, Christopher Hall, 16, was in critical condition yesterday, but due to patient privacy laws, we are not able to get an update.
