Vidor, TX – Lance Butts ID’d as Second Victim Killed in N Linscomb Rd Crash

Vidor, TX (December 30, 2019) – An unimaginable motor vehicle accident on Friday claimed two victim’s lives.

On December 20, at approximately 8:30 p.m., authorities were called to the scene of a major motor vehicle accident on Linscomb Road just north of Highway 12.

Reports indicate that 19-year-old Lance Butts was traveling along the roadway on a 2015 Honda motorcycle when his vehicle collided head-on with a 2016 Suzuki motorcycle driven by 21-year-old Colby Cooper.

Both Cooper and Butts incurred fatal injuries in the collision and were declared deceased at the scene.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the families of both Lance Butts and Colby Cooper.  Our thoughts are with them at this time.
