Media Release:

The Texarkana Texas Police Department is investigating a crash involving a vehicle and a log truck on South Lake Drive that left one person dead tonight.

At approximately 7:35 p.m., patrol officers responded to a report of a major vehicle accident at the intersection of South Lake Drive and Buchanan Road.  When officers arrived, they discovered that the female passenger in the personal vehicle was deceased.  Both drivers were transported to Christus Saint Michael, where they are being treated for unknown injuries.

While information is somewhat limited at this point, the preliminary investigation indicates that the log truck was traveling northbound on South Lake Drive.  The personal vehicle was southbound and attempting a left turn onto Buchanan Road.  The truck struck the personal vehicle as it crossed into the path of the truck.

The names of those involved are being withheld pending notification of the next of kin.  The crash is still under investigation.  If additional information becomes available overnight, I will provide a follow up release in the morning.

Please avoid the area while emergency personnel are working the accident scene. The crash remains under investigation at this time.
