Deadly highway accident

Posted:

DENISON, TX-- A man is dead after an accident in Denison and another man could be facing charges.

It happened around 5 tonight on Highway 75 just after the Morton Street exit.

Police said a driver of a small car slowed down for traffic, but the driver of a pickup truck didn't slow down and slammed into the back of the car.

Police said the man was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the pickup wasn't hurt.

"We had a vehicle that was either slowed or stopped, unclear right at this point, in the northbound lane of 75. Had a pickup come up behind the vehicle, did not apply brakes in time to avoid a collision,” Lt. Mike Eppler with the Denison Police Department said.

Police believe traffic had slowed down in that area because of another accident.

We don't know the names of those involved.

Investigators are still trying to piece together what happened.
