Wreck Kills An East Texas Man

A head on collision kills an East Texas man. Authorities say 63 year old Sam Harris was driving on Highway 79 in Henderson, when his SUV was hit by another vehicle. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

Authorities believe the other driver, 16 year old Jacob Holmes of Henderson fell asleep at the wheel and overcorrected, hitting Harris. Holmes was taken to a local hospital. No word yet on whether charges will be filed.
