Zachery Jester, a 20-year-old Klondike native, is deceased and four members of the Wallace family of Winnsboro are in the hospital after a two vehicle wreck that occurred Saturday afternoon on the northbound lane of Loop 49 north of Highway 64 West just outside of Tyler.
A preliminary investigation indicates that the Jester was heading north on Loop 49 while a Ford F-150 truck was heading south on the same road.
For reasons not yet determined, Jester crossed over the center stripe and into the opposite lane of traffic, hitting the Ford truck, driven by 32-year-old Eric Wallace.
The crash killed Jester. Eric and 25-year-old Andrea Wallace were taken to ETMC-Tyler. Another passenger in the Ford, 5-year-old Andrew Wallace was later flown to Children's Hospital in Dallas in serious condition.
Two-year-old Daniel Wallace was airlifted to Cooks Children's Hospital in Dallas with unknown injuries.
