Mack truck-logging truck collision kills one in Texas

The Texas Department of Safety reported that an accident between two 18-wheelers claimed the life of one person in Smith County, an area located east of Tyler near LB Wilson Lake, in late December.

According to the authorities, 59-year-old Kennard, Texas resident Archie Lee Moore, the driver of a logging truck, had been heading south on County Road 21 (also called Red Bird County), when he collided with a Mack truck driver who was westbound on County Road 26 (also known as Jamestown Road).

Initial investigations showed that the Mack truck driver “failed to yield the right of way at a stop sign,” causing the logging truck to be trapped underneath the Mack truck and the Mack truck to veer off the road.

It was not clear in the DPS report who died in the accident.
