Cherokee County, TX (9/7/2021) – A multi-vehicle crash involving a tractor shut down the highway and caused injuries Tuesday near Troup.
The accident happened on Highway 110 south of CR 4807 when a John Deere tractor pulling a disc was headed north while a Ford F-150 was following behind. The Ford failed to slow his speed and struck the back of the disc, causing the Ford to stop facing south and the tractor facing west in the southbound lanes. That’s when a Ford Excursion headed south on 110 drove through the crash site and struck the tractor.
The driver of the Ford, 27-year-old Bryce Freund, was taken to UT Health in Tyler with non-incapacitating injuries.
The tractor driver, 44-year-old Forrest Howell, and the occupants in the Excursion, 62-year-old Patricia Collins and a 9-year-old girl, were treated at the scene.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
