Amarillo, TX (February 14, 2022) – A two-vehicle accident reported in Potter County on Thursday afternoon claimed one person’s life. At around 3:35 p.m., on February 10, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Texas State Highway 136.

Reports from authorities show that a 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by 43-year-old Ericka McCann was traveling south on Texas State Highway 136. For unknown reasons, the vehicle collided with a northbound 2019 GMC Terrain near Farm to Market Road 1912.

The impact of the crash caused the GMC to slide off the roadway and spin around before landing in a ditch. The Tahoe then slid around and struck the GMC a second time.

The driver of the GMC, 73-year-old Larry Casey, sustained serious injuries in the crash and was rushed to Amarillo Northwest Texas Healthcare System. His passenger, 72-year-old Julie Casey, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

McCann was transported to Amarillo Northwest Texas Healthcare System with serious injuries.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Ericka McCann and Larry Casey at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Julie Casey. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Fatal Car Accidents in Texas

In many cases, these crashes are entirely preventable. We see many drivers, passengers, and other travelers lose their lives in accidents due to the negligence of others.
