Jasper County, TX – 2 Teens Killed and 1 Injured in Fatal Vehicle Crash on County Road 120
Jasper County, TX (April 14, 2019) On the morning of April 14th, a fatal vehicle crash happened on County Road 120. The Texas Department of Public Safety reported that a 2003 Ford F-150 pickup truck was headed southbound when it somehow left the road and struck a tree at around 1:00 a.m.
When emergency crews arrived to help, they found the 17-year-old driver, Jarvis Samuel Wilson, dead inside of his vehicle. A 15-year-old male passenger suffered injuries and was taken to Jasper Memorial Hospital for treatment. Another 17-year-old passenger was also taken to the same hospital for critical injuries, but she passed away despite life-saving procedures.
The police are investigating the accident and running a drug and alcohol test on Wilson since the accident took place in the middle of the night.
Our sincerest thoughts are with the two deceased teens’ families as they grieve over their losses. We hope the other injured teen fully recovers.

Sometimes these accidents are a result of drivers under the influence, especially if they happen in the middle of the night. Other times it could be a result of driver’s fatigue.
