Two Die In Separate East Texas Wrecks

Two people are dead and one is in critical condition after two separate crashes in East Texas. In Longview, a motorcycle crash in the 200 block of Syble Lane killed a 32-year-old Longview man.  Officials say Jason Collins lost control of his motorcycle yesterday afternoon and crashed into a parked car in a driveway.  This the sixth fatal crash in Longview this year.

The other crash in Cass county happened just after midnight this morning.  The two-vehicle collision killed a Linden teenager at the intersection of Highway 59 and F.M. 3129.  Police say Ladevin Hodge, 16, ran a red light and crashed into another vehicle.  Hodge was pronounced dead at the scene.  A passenger, Whitney Surratt, 17, is in critical condition in an Arkansas hospital.
