Harker Heights, TX (December 2, 2021) – One person has lost their life as a result of a two-vehicle accident on Tuesday morning in the Harker Heights area. At around 7:30 a.m., on November 30, calls for assistance came in surrounding a crash that occurred on Texas State Highway 9.
Reports from authorities show that a 2021 Toyota Rav4 SUV was traveling south on Texas State Highway 9. For unknown reasons, the female driver of the vehicle steered the vehicle into the westbound lanes where it collided with a 2014 Chevrolet sedan.
The impact of the crash caused the Chevrolet to skid into the path of an eastbound 2012 Chrysler sedan, driven by a 55-year-old female.
The driver of the 2014 Chevrolet, 23-year-old Cole Hagen Simmons, sustained fatal injuries in the accident. He was rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
The two other drivers were transported to area hospitals for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
