Gary Rozzell, Texas Department of Public Safety information officer, said Gary Wayne Longerbone, 81, of PK Lake died when the 1995 GMC he was driving ran into a dock that was being towed.
“The GMC was eastbound on FM 2951, the towed dock was westbound,” Rozzell said.
He explained that the dock extended across both lanes and Longerbone’s truck impacted the dock in his lane.
PK East EMS responded to the scene and PK East Volunteer Fire Department personnel had to remove the roof and driver’s door of the GMC.
The dock was being pulled by a 2007 Dodge Ram, driven by Robert Carrol Ferguson, 65, of PK Lake.
Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace Shawn Humphries pronounced Longerbone at 2:50 p.m. and ordered an autopsy.
Rozzell said no citations have been issued, but the accident is still under investigation.
Sunday afternoon, no one was injured in an accident in the 3100 block of Park Road 36.
According to reports at the scene, Brandon Raines, 19, of Dallas, was en route from Camp Constantin when his Jeep struck a Tahoe driven by Scott McGaha, 48, of Grapevine.
No other information was available at press time.
Sunday night, three motorcycles went to the ground on Highway 16 near the turnout on Kimberlin Mountain.
Reports from the scene were that David Pruitt, 39, was entering a curve when a peg scraped the pavement causing him to lose control of the Harley-Davidson he was riding.
He was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital by Air Evac with what were described as “incapacitating injuries.”
Two other motorcycles also went to the ground as riders attempted to avoid the accident. Bylan Ervin, 19, riding a 1994 Honda with a passenger, Heather Sanders, 26; and Mckenzie Guthrie, 20, on a 2006 Suzuki Colt, were taken to Graham Regional Medical Center by PK East EMS.
Again, no other information was available at press time.
