At approximately 6:20am, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) received a report of a two vehicle crash on Highway 62 near Cohenour Road in Orange County.

A 2015 Dodge pickup truck towing a trailer was traveling northbound on Highway 62.  The driver of the Dodge truck slowed to make a left turn onto Cohenour Road and was struck from behind by a GMC pickup truck.
