Polk County, Texas (May 5, 2018) – The man who was killed in a two-car accident that left two others hospitalized on Friday afternoon in Polk County has been identified as Jeremy Jones, 36, of Houston.
According to a Texas Department of Public Safety report, the collision happened at around 3:30 p.m. Friday, May 4 in the southbound lanes of U.S. Highway 59 about two miles north of Corrigan.
According to the DPS report, Javan Bluford, 20, of San Augustine was driving a 2003 Ford pickup northbound on U.S. Highway 59 when he lost control, and the vehicle slid through the grass median.
The Ford collided with a southbound 2013 Hyundai passenger car, driven by 44-year-old Larece Perry of Coldspring, and had Jones as a passenger.
