College Station, TX – Teresa Schwertner-Lee Killed In Semi-Truck Crash On Hwy 6
College Station, TX (May 27, 2019) – On May 24, College Station Police and emergency crews responded to the scene of a tractor-trailer collision along Texas Highway 6 South.
According to reports, around 4:45 p.m., a semi-truck was traveling south along Hwy 6 when it experienced a tire blowout. The blowout caused the semi-truck to slow down along the roadway. Another tractor-trailer approached from the rear was unable to slow down. As a result, the driver of the semi-truck moved over into the medial.
As the tractor-trailer entered into the median, the trailer detached and landed on the cab, causing serious injuries to two individuals inside the truck. The passenger, who was identified as 45-year-old Teresa Ann Schwertner-Lee was pronounced deceased at the scene of the incident.
The driver sustained serious injuries and was transported by helicopter to an area hospital.
The tractor-trailer with the separated tire fled the scene of the incident.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time.
We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family of Teresa Ann Schwertner-Lee. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
