Big Spring, TX — A deadly two-car accident left two men dead and two others injured on Monday night, August 26, 2013 several miles south of Big Spring. Texas DPS troopers said that Wilson Edwards, 41, was killed along with another driver when his vehicle swerved into oncoming traffic and was involved in a collision with two separate cars.
Edwards was driving along Farm Road 33, about 10 miles north of Garden City, at 10:30 p.m. on Monday night when his pickup truck veered into the oncoming lanes of traffic for unknown reasons.
Edwards’ pickup truck then crashed into a Curtis Gaston’s oncoming car, who managed to navigate mostly out of Edwards’ path. A third vehicle, a pickup truck, was behind Gaston’s car and was unable to maneuver in time. Edwards’ pickup truck and the oncoming pickup truck were involved in a head-on collision, which killed both Edwards and the other driver at the scene.
Gaston and his passenger, Justin Stockton, 26, both sustained non-critical injuries and were taken to a hospital.
The matter is under investigation and it was unclear what caused Edwards to swerve into oncoming traffic.
