Oldham County, TX – Brandon Supple Killed in Truck Accident on I-40
Oldham County, TX (July 14, 2019) On the afternoon of July 13th, a truck accident happened on Interstate 40, just four miles west of Wildorado. A 2014 Ford F-350 was towing a trailer while traveling east on the highway behind a semi-truck. The driver of the semi-truck put his hazard lights on and pulled over to the shoulder of the highway. The driver of the F-350 was unable to brake in time and rear-ended the semi-truck. The accident happened at approximately 3:11 p.m.
When first responders arrived to help, they found the driver of the F-350 dead at the scene. He has been identified as 45-year-old Brandon Supple. The driver of the semi-truck, 44-year-old Kesar Singh, was not injured in the accident and neither was his passenger, 23-year-old Litt Singh.
The authorities are still investigating the collision to gather more facts regarding the case and to determine fault and liability.
We send our condolences to the family of Brandon Supple as they grieve over his loss.
