Jones County, TX -- December 23, 2021, 69-year-old William Boyd was killed in a single-vehicle accident on Farm to Market Road 605 in Jones County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 1:50 a.m. on FM 605 near mile marker 404.

The truck left the roadway to the south and crashed through a fence, then bottomed out on a dirt berm. Investigators noted it looked like Boyd tried to reverse away from the berm but was unable to get traction. Soon afterward the pickup caught fire with Boyd trapped inside.

Boyd received fatal injuries in the accident.

No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on William Boyd Accident on FM 605 in Jones County

When folks see a late-night single-vehicle accident like this one, they have a tendency to jump to certain conclusions. Was the driver distracted by his phone? Speeding? Intoxicated?

Those are all pretty common factors in similar wrecks, and they certainly warrant investigation. However, a prudent investigator knows the importance of also considering less likely possibilities. For example, a manufacturing defect in the vehicle is relatively uncommon, but those have claimed many lives over the years.

Getting the people affected by this tragic accident the answers they need means letting the evidence speak for itself rather than jumping to conclusions. Whether or not the authorities here will properly consider all the possibilities remains to be seen.
