Accident On I-20 Claims One Life, Hospitalizes Two Others

One person is dead and two others remain hospitalized this morning after an accident in Smith County.

It happened last night on Interstate 20, near F-M 14, north of the Tyler city limits.

D-P-S authorities tell us two adults and a child were driving westbound when their car veered to the right and clipped a truck that was parked on the side of the road.

That collision caused the car to flip over.

The person killed was pronounced dead on the scene.

The child hurt was taken to Children's Medical Center in Dallas. The other adult is at East Texas Medical Center in Tyler.

At last check, both of them were listed in critical condition.

Their identities are being witheld at this time, pending family notification.
