Fatal Two-Vehicle Crash in Henderson County

Henderson County, TX (12/10/2019) – A woman is dead and three others are injured after a fatal two-vehicle wreck in Henderson County.

The incident happened at the intersection of SH 19 and FM 2752 around 4:20 p.m. A Dodge Dakota, driven by Bryan Denman, 57, was traveling south on SH 19 when he moved into the left turning lane to turn onto FM 2752. He failed to yield right of way and was then struck by a Ford Fiesta driven by 17-year-old James Donovan Trahan.

The passenger in the fiesta, 62-year-old Lillian Lucile Gayton, was transported to a local hospital, where she later died.

Another passenger, an 8-year-old boy, was taken to Children’s Medical Center in Dallas.

The two drivers were transported to UT Health in Athens where they remain in stable condition.

Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.

Because Denman railed to yield right of way, he may be liable for the actions that resulted in his failure to yield. The family of Gayton may be entitled to a wrongful death claim. In addition, the family of the 8-year-old boy has a right to file a personal injury claim.

If an insurance company is making it difficult to receive payment of your claim, or a person’s insurance is substantial, hiring a lawyer is in your best interest. In most of our large wrongful death cases the company and its insurance company will have people on site the day of the incident gathering evidence. If you hire a lawyer immediately, the lawyer can take steps to make sure that you and your family’s interests are protected.
