Two Killed In Lakeport Crash

Two East Texans are killed in a two-car crash where state troopers say wet roadways were a factor. Authorities say it happened last night on Highway 149 just north of Lakeport in Gregg County. Troopers say Albert Green, 51, of Marshall turned directly in front of north-bound traffic, failing to yield, and crashed into an oncoming truck.

Green and passenger Kenneth Milton, 41, of Longview were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the truck suffered only minor injuries. Troopers say the victims were wearing seatbelts.
