Two injured, horse killed in crash

TIOGA, Texas (KXII) — A semi truck hit a pickup truck hauling a horse trailer, and two other vehicles in a chain reaction wreck Wednesday at Highway 377 and Buck Creek Road.

Two people suffered serious injuries according to officials at the scene, but were conscious when they were taken to the hospital.

The prize-winning horse in the trailer died.

“We had a vehicle turning east bound, and this 18-wheeler right here was southbound. and apparently there was some confusion, and he struck the back end of the vehicle which forced it into the north lane of traffic,” Tioga Police Chief Curtis Maycomb said.

Police said it’s too early to what exactly caused the crash.
