In a tragic multi-vehicle accident on November 21 at 6 a.m. on U.S. Highway 67 in Coleman County, one person lost their life. Phillip Scott Mayfield, 48, of San Antonio, was identified as the victim.
According to the officials, several vehicles were involved in a collision. A 2016 Ford F-350 pickup collided with a 1999 Freightliner truck tractor towing a 2009 Dire semi-trailer. Mayfield was fatally injured and was pronounced dead at the fatal crash by Justice of the Peace Vickie Holder.
The preliminary investigation indicated that the Ford F-350, travelling west on US 67, entered the wrong side of the roadway in a no-passing zone. This caused it to collide with the eastbound semi.
The driver of the semi, Demmit Clayborne Gray, 57, of Franklin, sustained non-incapacitating injuries and was transported to Coleman Medical Center in stable condition.
