Tyler man killed in multi-vehicle wreck on NNW Loop 323
TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - A Tyler man died in a wreck in north Tyler on Wednesday.
The man has been identified as Jimmy Hayes, 75, of Tyler. Tyler police say his family has been notified.
According to Tyler Police PIO Andy Erbaugh, the investigation determined that three vehicles were in the eastbound turn lane of loop 323 stopped, waiting to turn north onto Pointe N. Dr.
Hayes was eastbound in his Ford F-150 when he veered left from the straight lane of traffic into the turn lane and struck the rear vehicle stopped in the turn lane, Erbaugh said. This caused it to be pushed forward into the vehicle in front of it and so on to the next two vehicles. An occupant of one of the other vehicles was taken to a local hospital by EMS with non-life threatening injuries.
According to Erbaugh, officers had responded to the four-vehicle wreck at around 3:08 p.m. The wreck was in the eastbound lanes of WNW Loop 323 at Pointe N. Dr.
