Jesse Hogan Injured in Montague County Semi-Truck Crash on FM 1816 at U.S. 82

Montague County, Texas (April 4, 2021) – Two people were killed, and another was injured Thursday afternoon in a semi-truck crash in Montague County, according to the Texas DPS.

The fatal crash happened around 6:40 p.m., on April 1, at the intersection of FM 1816 and U.S. 82.

DPS said Artie Carlton Willett, 40, of Bowie, was driving a 1992 Buick northbound on FM 1816 approaching U.S. 82 while a semi-truck towing a trailer was traveling eastbound on U.S. 82.

Willett was unable to stop at the intersection and drove into the path of the semi-truck. The semi-truck driver was unable to perform an evasive maneuver and hit the Buick.

The force of the impact caused both vehicles to roll over, and they both came to rest in the northbound ditch along U.S. 82.

Willett and his passenger, Kenneth Wayne Killian, 40, of Nocona, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The semi-truck driver, Jesse Hogan, was taken to Nocona Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The authorities are investigating the crash.

“When a person has suffered a grave personal injury in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, the most overwhelming emotion they feel is a sense of injustice. They often ask how such a life-altering event could have happened to them,” attorney Joel A. Gordon said. “The next question usually is, who can help me?” Mr. Gordon added.

A legal advocate can represent an injury victim or the family of a deceased victim. The attorney will file a claim on behalf of the victim and will have the responsibility of citing existing codes, laws, or statutes which were violated.
