Alcohol A Possible Contributing Factor In The Highway 380 Accident Involving The Tow Truck

Late Sunday night Benson Brothers Wrecker Service had a truck strike one of their units while on the side of the roadway loading a disabled vehicle. The Department Of Public Safety released this statement in reference to that accident.

At approximately 7:59 p.m. Highway Patrol Troopers were dispatched to a major crash on Highway 380 just East of Greenville involving a Ford pick-up truck and a tow truck.

Preliminary investigation indicates that a Benson Brothers wrecker truck was picking up a un-occupied Chevy pick-up truck on the Eastbound shoulder of Highway 380 when a Ford pick-up truck drifted onto the shoulder and struck the un-occupied truck, pushing it on top of the wrecker truck.

The occupants of the tow truck were not inside of the vehicle at the time of the crash and were not injured.

The driver of the Ford was transported to Hunt County Regional with non-life threatening injuries.

Alcohol is a possible contributing factor for the crash, the investigation is ongoing and no further information is available at this time
