PRESS RELEASE — On January 27, 2019, at approximately 4:30 p.m., the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Troopers responded to a multiple vehicle crash at the intersection of US 190 and FM 777 in Jasper County.

Initial reports indicate that a 2001 Dodge Ram pickup truck was traveling northbound on FM 777.  A 2007 Chrysler SUV was traveling eastbound on US 190. The driver of the Dodge pickup truck approached the intersection of FM 777 and US 190 and stopped.  After stopping at the stop sign, the driver of the Dodge pickup truck pulled into the path of the Chrysler, striking the Chrysler in the back right quarter panel.  The impact of the collision caused the Chrysler to travel off the roadway and spun the Dodge pickup truck into the westbound traffic lane of US 190.  The Dodge pickup truck was then struck by a 2014 Dodge Durango.

The driver of the Dodge Ram pickup truck, 67-year-old Rex Bryan of Jasper, was transported by medical helicopter to St. Elizabeth hospital with serious injuries.

The driver of the Chrysler, 45-year-old Carrie Wilburn of Colmesneil, and her 11-year-old daughter were both transported by ambulance to Jasper Memorial hospital.  Their injuries did not appear to be life threatening.  The two  additional passengers in the Chrysler were not injured.

The driver of the Dodge Durango, 32-year-old Jerri Moore of Orange, and all four of her passengers were transported by ambulance to Jasper Memorial hospital.  Their injuries were not believed to be life threatening.  One of her passengers was her 3-year-old son who was properly secured in his child safety seat.

This is an ongoing crash investigation as Troopers work to determine the exact factors that contributed to this crash.
