Tyler Man Dead After Hitting Empty Building

A Tyler man died yesterday in a wreck on the corner of West Erwin Street and Loop 323 in Tyler. Police say thirty-three-year-old Refugio Palomino Nunez lost control of his vehicle, and ran into the old KLTV building.

Despite earlier reports, police say the truck was not stolen. Officer Don Martin with the Tyler Police Department says alcohol, speed, and wet streets were a factor in the accident.
