Hardeman County, TX (11/26/2019) – One person was killed and another was injured after being involved in an accident Thursday afternoon, November 26, in Hardeman County.
Eldridge Miller, 63, was traveling in an SUV heading East on SH 287 when he struck a livestock trailer that was stopped in the right-hand lane of traffic. Both drivers, Miller and the driver of the livestock trailer, were driving through heavy smoke from a large grass fire nearby.
Miller passed away from his injuries after being transported to Hardeman County Memorial Hospital.
His passenger, Loretta Miller, was transported to Amarillo for her injuries sustained in the accident.
The driver of the trailer was unharmed.
While the reason for the crash is unknown, chances are the crash was caused due to the smoke from the grass fire nearby. It is encouraged that when there is no visibility of the road, you should put on your low beam headlights or to stop the vehicle altogether and wait till visibility returns.
