Nemo, TX (November 21, 2021) – One man has lost his life following a motor vehicle accident in Somervell County on Wednesday afternoon. At around 3:20 p.m., on November 17, emergency crews were called to the scene of a crash on County Road 308.
Reports from the Texas Department of Public Safety show that 69-year-old David Hanks was driving a 2012 Ford F-150 pickup truck near the area of County Road 308 and US Highway 67. For unknown reasons, the truck became involved in a crash with a 2007 Peterbilt truck-tractor.
DPS and firefighters went to work immediately on securing the area to prevent further injuries.
Hanks was rushed to Texas Health Resources Hospital in Cleburne for the treatment of severe injuries. Authorities confirmed that he passed away after arriving.
The driver of the semi-truck, 50-year-old William Parnell, was not injured in the crash.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of David Hanks. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
