Lyons, TX – Crash On FM 60 Claims The Life Of Keith Porter

Lyons, TX (April 26, 2019) – On Friday, the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to the scene of a two-vehicle collision on FM 60.

According to reports, 55-year-old Keith Porter was traveling along FM 60 when his pickup truck crossed the center lines and crashed into an 18-wheeler head-on. Porter was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the incident, which caused him to sustain fatal injuries. Porter was pronounced deceased at the scene of the incident by DPS officers. The driver of the semi-truck was treated for injuries at the scene of the collision.

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of Keith Porter. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
