Hemphill, TX (January 14, 2023) – A truck accident reported in Sabine County resulted in injuries. On January 11, the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to a traffic crash that occurred on Highway 21.
According to reports provided by DPS, at approximately 430 p.m., a 2018 Dodge pickup truck was traveling east on Highway 21. As the vehicle slowed down near the entrance of the Lost Frontier RV Park, it was struck in the rear end by a 2007 Peterbilt truck that was following too closely to the vehicle.
The driver of the dogs, 23-year-old Brett McGee, and his passenger, 22-year-old Hunter Thibodaux, both suffered injuries due to the accident. The two victims were transported to local hospitals for emergency care.
The driver of the Peterbilt truck and his passenger, identified as Ryan Johnson and 23-year-old Jacob Arrendondo, were uninjured in the accident.

Truck Accidents in Texas
Truck crashes left over 4800 people injured in the state of Texas in 2022. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are caused by drivers who engage in negligent actions. One of the most common types of truck accidents that we see Lim victims injured in our state is the rear-end collision. Rear-end truck accidents are extremely dangerous and are often caused by drivers who follow too closely. If you are following a truck too closely, you may not have time to brake if the truck suddenly stops. This can result in a serious accident.
There are a variety of injuries that can result from serious rear-end truck accidents in our states. Some of the most common include:
- Headaches: Headaches are another common complaint following a truck accident. They can be caused by a variety of factors, including whiplash, concussions, or even stress.
- Back pain: Back pain is another frequent complaint after a truck accident. The force of the impact can cause damage to the spinal cord or back, resulting in pain and inflammation.
- Whiplash: This painful injury can result in a range of motion limitations for victims.
- Cuts, scrapes, and abrasions: These injuries can be incredibly painful. Unfortunately, they often result in scarring or muscle and nerve damage.
