Johnson City, TX (11/25/2019) –
Two men were killed while driving on U.S. Highway 281 near Johnson City Tuesday morning, November 24.
According to DPS, Larry Waxler, 36, was driving in a Ford F-150 going southbound when he crossed over the solid yellow lines and hit a Toyota driven by Phelan Hill, 39.
Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene.
Traffic in both directions between Johnson City and Road Mountain were closed after the crash. They have since then been reopened.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
Both families of the two men that died in the accident have rights to file a claim of wrongful death with their respective insurance companies. However, insurance companies are only looking out for their best interests. For instance, State Farm claims and USAA claims are only working towards what will be in favor of State Farm and USAA. Anything you tell to an insurance company claims adjuster can be used against you.
