Claude, TX (March 21, 2022) – An auto accident reported in Armstrong County has claimed one man’s life. At around 1:40 a.m., on March 20, the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to the scene of an auto accident on US Highway 287.

Reports provided by DPS indicate that 30-year-old Tyler Ebbit was driving a 2020 Freightliner truck while towing a semi-trailer on US Highway 287. As he attempted to exit the roadway for the eastbound side rest area, the vehicle collided with a 2022 Chrysler 300.

The impact of the crash caused the Chrysler to overturn. The driver of the vehicle, 41-year-old Coy Crowder, was ejected from the vehicle.

Crowder sustained fatal injuries in the crash. He was declared deceased at the scene.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

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

Fatal Truck Accidents in Texas

Claude, TX – Coy Crowder Loses Life in 18-Wheeler Crash on US-287Each year, over 500 people lose their lives in truck accidents across the state of Texas. The fact that these vehicles are much larger and heavier than others sharing the road means they are likely to cause severe damage to anything they come into contact with.

We see many drivers, passengers, and other travelers lose their lives in accidents due to the negligence of others. Some of the leading causes of fatal crashes include:

  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol
  • Driver inattention
  • Speeding
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Running red lights
