Edward Wills Jr. Killed in Truck Accident on Highway 11 in Fannin County, TX

Fannin County, TX — December 27, 2022, 59-year-old Edward Wills Jr. died in a collision with a commercial vehicle on State Highway 11 in Fannin County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 12:40 p.m. on Highway 11 at County Road 3830. Preliminary investigation suggests Wills was driving a Dodge Dakota pickup northwest on the highway when he started to approach a Hino box truck from behind. Reports say the Hino truck slowed to turn left onto CR 3830 and Wills allegedly tried to pass it on the left in a no-passing zone.

As the box truck turned through his path ahead Wills reportedly braked hard and swerved right to avoid it. The pickup crashed into the back-left quarter of the Hino in the northwest-bound lane, then caught fire.

Wills suffered fatal injuries in the collision. No other injuries were reported.

No further information is currently available.


Maybe further investigation would confirm officers' preliminary findings here, but considering a man lost his life on Highway 11 it's only right to take the time and care to be sure. Whatever officers' original impressions were at the scene, I've done this more than long enough to know that sometimes what they saw could have been misleading or important details could have slipped through the cracks.

All other concerns aside, people who lose someone dear to them deserve the truth of how and why that occurred. Knowing the facts may deliver nothing but a measure of peace at not having lingering questions or confusion, but whatever the end result getting the truth for the people who need it is paramount. I hope authorities did everything in their power to deliver some real answers.
