Tyler, TX (8/22/2021) – A woman was killed and two people were left with serious injuries Sunday afternoon after a two-vehicle crash.

The accident happened around 1:08 p.m. on Spur 364 in Smith County near Tyler. A Chevrolet Silverado was headed west while a Nissan Sentra was headed east. For unknown reasons, the Chevrolet crossed into the eastbound lane and struck the Nissan. 

The driver of the Chevrolet, 19-year-old Jeffery Harmon, was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

The driver of the Nissan, 48-year-old Holly Lewis, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her passenger, a 17-year-old, was taken to the hospital in critical 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.

Head-On Collision Lawyers

More often than not, crossing the center line while driving leads to wrong-way collisions, which then can lead to untimely deaths. Because a car is heading at you in the opposite direction in dangerous speeds, the consequences are deadly. According to the FHWA, in the United States, WWD crashes result in 300 to 400 people killed each year on average, representing approximately 1 percent of the total number of traffic related fatalities that occur annually. 

Because a driver crossed the center line, a woman was fatally killed and her passenger was sent to the hospital. Don’t let a wrong-way collision halt your life for the worse.
