Fatal accident on 82 east of Sherman

By  | 

SHERMAN -- SHERMAN -- A car accident just east of Sherman killed a bells man Thursday morning.

Troopers say Jerry Don Johnson was driving west on U.S. Highway 82 near Whitney Road when his Ford Contour drifted over the center line and hit a pickup head on.

An Austin family was riding in that truck. All three of them were taken to Wilson N. Jones Hospital in serious condition.

Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene.

Highway 82 east was shut down for about an hour and a half.
