Mickey Jones Killed in Single-Vehicle Accident on TX-64 in Van Zandt County

Van Zandt County, TX -- February 3, 2022, 43-year-old Mickey Jones was killed in a single-vehicle accident on State Highway 64 in Van Zandt County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 6:00 p.m. on TX-64 roughly 6.5 miles east of Canton. Preliminary investigation suggests Jones was driving a Dodge Ram pickup truck west at allegedly-unsafe speeds when he lost control. The truck entered a clockwise spin and slid off the north side of the road, then passed through a ditch and crashed into a tree.

Jones, reportedly not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, was pronounced dead at the scene.

No further information is currently available.

Commentary on Mickey Jones Accident on TX-64 in Van Zandt County

Reports mention speeding as a possible factor in this accident, and given the described circumstances that seems plausible. Couple that with icy roadways in many parts of Texas starting on Thursday and it's a recipe for many kinds of crashes (some may recall the huge and fatal Fort Worth pileup on Interstate 35 around this time last year).

However, before casually blaming speed or ice (or both) and considering the matter closed it's important to note that this crash like any other deserves a full and careful investigation to be sure all its details are properly identified. Until the facts clearly point to a specific cause--which at this point could still be a tire blowout, a mechanical failure, some kind of incapacitating health problem, fatigue or distraction, another vehicle, or many other factors--it's important that no one jump to any conclusions. At the very least, the victim's loved ones deserve to know that no stone was left unturned in the effort to bring them the whole truth.
