UPDATE: UPSHUR COUNTY (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - GILMER -- A Hallsville man died Sunday night
after wrecking his motorcycle and then being run over by a pickup truck
whose driver fled the scene in rural Upshur County, said investigating
Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Brandon Love
were seeking a white pickup which overran 35-year-old Maxwell Kyle
Hardin as he lay in the roadway of Farm-to-Market Road 726 after
wrecking the motorcycle in an accident which also injured his girl
friend, Love said. Hardin died after being taken by ambulance to East
Texas Medical Center-Gilmer, where Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace W.V.
Ray pronounced him dead at 8:35 p.m., said Love.
Donna Rene Miller of Hallsville, who was
marking her 36th birthday, was taken by ambulance to Good Shepherd
Medical Center in Longview with possible head injuries, but was expected
to recover, Love said. She and Hardin had left a birthday party for her
at her home in Hallsville, the trooper said.
Authorities do not know whether it was the motorcycle crash, or the pickup, which killed Hardin, Love said.
The trooper gave this account of the accidents and related events:
and Ms. Miller were southbound on 726 between the intersections with
Texas Hwy. 154 and Farm-to-Market Road 1650 (near Glenwood community)
when Hardin swerved the 1999 Honda Shadow to miss a deer. The driver
lost control and ran into a ditch on the roadway's right side, throwing
him and Ms. Miller off the motorcycle.
Hardin was lying in the
southbound lane when, probably within 30 seconds, the southbound pickup
overran him and stopped momentarily before continuing southward on 726. A
man who was sitting on his porch witnessed the motorcycle accident and
was going to help when he saw the pickup run over Hardin.
witness couldn't tell anything about the driver, but said nobody exited
the vehicle. Authorities have no description of it other than it was a
white pickup, and anyone with information on the incident is asked to
call the Tyler DPS office at (903) 939-6000 or the Upshur County
Sheriff's Office at 843-2541.
Leaving the scene of the accident was a felony offense.
and Ms. Miller weren't wearing helmets, but she was able to call 911 on
her cell phone. Love was notified of the incidents at 7:15 p.m.
Those were the first of four traffic crashes
attributable at least partly to animals in rural Upshur County on Sunday
evening. The other two, both caused by a calf who strayed into
Farm-to-Market Road 2263 three miles east of Gilmer, resulted in no
serious injuries, according to Love.
David Sterling, 55, of
Gilmer, was southbound when his 2001 GMC pickup struck the calf, Love
said. Sterling exited the truck, was charged by the animal, and received
a minor knee injury when he ran and jumped back into the vehicle, said
Love said he was called to that accident at 10:30
p.m., arrived at 10:39, and was turning his patrol car around when he
witnessed the second crash. The calf had run northward up the road, and
55-year-old Amron Dailey of Gilmer overturned her southbound 2005
Chevrolet Mailbu when she swerved to miss the animal, the trooper said.
saw her car rolling in my headlights in the ditch ... I saw it roll
twice," Love said. Ms. Dailey escaped injury when the vehicle ran off
the roadway's right side and ended up right side up, straddling a ditch.
She was wearing her seat belt, which "definitely saved her from getting ejected," Love said.
accidents occurred near the intersection with Blue Bell Road, and both
Sterling and Ms. Dailey were alone in their vehicles, Love said. Both
reside on the FM road, he stated.
The calf, located in a field off the roadway some time after the two crashes, survived.
