Mt. Pleasant, TX – Derry D. Chism Killed In Motor Vehicle Accident On Interstate 30

Mt. Pleasant, TX (March 26, 2019) – On Monday, March 25, the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 30.

The accident occurred just after 2:00 p.m. The Lexus GX470, driven by Derry D. Chism, 46, was traveling westbound along I-30 when it suddenly veered off the road and rear-ended a semi-truck that was stopped on the shoulder of the interstate.

Chism’s vehicle rolled several times before he was ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. The driver of the semi-truck, 30-year-old Joshua Allan Beach, was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment to injuries sustained in the crash.

Our deepest condolences go out to the Chism family as they deal with this tragic loss. We also hope Mr. Beach is able to make a fast and full recovery from his injuries.
