Rusk County, TX – One Teen Killed & One Injured In Crash On CR 165

Rusk County, TX (May 7, 2019) – On May 6, around 7 p.m., Texas Department Of Public Safety responded to the scene of a single-vehicle crash on Country Road 165.

According to reports from DPS, 18-year-old Demarcus Keshaun Holsome was traveling along CR 165 at an unsafe speed when he lost control of his vehicle while traveling through a curved area of the road.

The vehicle traveled off the roadway, causing Holsome to jerk the wheel. As a result, the vehicle went onto its side and skidded across the roadway. The vehicle ultimately came to rest in a ditch along the east side of the roadway, where it landed on its roof.

Holsome was injured in the collision and transported to a Henderson hospital for treatment.

The passenger in the vehicle, who was identified as 15-year-old Bagley Mahdessian, was transported to a Longview hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries.

Our thoughts are with the Demarcus Keshaun Holsome and his family at this time.

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family or families of Bagley Mahdessian.  Our thoughts are with them at this time.
