Montague County, TX (3/29/2021) – Two people were killed in a wreck involving a semi-truck on Thursday.
Two cars failed to stop at the intersection of FM 1816 and US 82, causing a semi-truck to crash into them. The semi-truck was unable to make an evasive maneuver to avoid the two cars.
Drivers Artie Carlton Willett, 40, and Kenneth Wayne Killian, 40, were both killed at the scene.
The driver of the semi was taken to Nocona Memorial hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Any type of motor vehicle accident has the potential to cause serious and life-changing injuries.

Pending the results of the investigation, if the semi-truck is seen at-fault and it turns into a case, the process of filing a truck accident claims begins.
