fatalaccidentEmergency crews responded to a call on I-20 Monday afternoon regarding a traffic accident that ended in the fatality of a 26-year-old Mineral Wells man. The wreck happened around 4:15 p.m. Monday on the interstate near Mitchell County Hospital.
Dillon Flowers of Mineral Wells was driving a 2012 Jeep Cherokee westbound on I-20. He was passing a 2013 Kenworth semi pulling a flatbed trailer in the passing lane when he lost control of his Jeep and went into the median, striking the center cables.
An accident report by the Texas Department of Public Safety states that Flowers overcorrected and his vehicle went back into the path of oncoming traffic where he was struck by the semi. The Jeep then struck the guardrail several times before coming to rest between the semi and the guardrail.
William Reilly, age 71 of Midland, was driving the semi. He was not hurt in the accident.
Justice of the Peace Rick Grissam pronounced Flowers dead at 4:44 p.m. Monday, April 13th.
