Cuney, TX (November 4, 2021) – One person has lost their life following a motor vehicle accident in Cherokee County while several others were left injured. On November 2, the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to the scene of a crash on Farm to Market Road 855.

Reports from DPS show that at around 3:33 p.m., a 2004 Nissan Sentra was traveling west on Farm to Market Road 855 when it collided with an eastbound 2020 Chevrolet Express van.

The impact of the crash forced the Nissan off the road where it struck a barbed-wire fence. The Chevrolet then came to rest in the westbound lane.

The driver of the Nissan, 22-year-old Kjyreaone Mayfield, suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.

The driver of the Chevrolet, 46-year-old Michael Welch Jr, and his passengers, 21-year-old Alexa Hill and 25-year-old Dakota Burkham, were all transported to UT-Health East Texas for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Michael Welch Jr, Alexa Hill, and Dakota Burkham. We hope for their full recovery.

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