Douglas Anthony Lee, Raven Williams, Demarcus Rawls Injured in 18-wheeler Accident on US 190 in Tyler County, TX

UPDATE (February 17, 2023): Recent information from authorities identifies three drivers involved in the crash. 30-year-old Raven Williams and 39-year-old Douglas Lee were said to have incapacitating injuries while 23-year-old Demarcus Rawls had injuries described as non-incapacitating.

It appears that Williams was in a westbound vehicle when it and an eastbound 18-wheeler driven by Lee somehow collided. That then led to an eastbound vehicle driven by Rawls crashing, as well. Exact details surrounding the crash are still unconfirmed at this time.

Tyler County, TX -- February 5, 2023, multiple people were injured following an accident involving an semi on the US 190 Neches River Bridge.

Authorities were called to the scene at around 9:00 p.m. near the Jasper County line. Beech Grove fire officials said that the incident involved multiple passenger vehicles and an 18-wheeler. The cause is not clear at this time. It appears "multiple" people were injured, including one person who had to be flown from the scene. Right now, additional details are unavailable.

It's not at all unusual for there to be so few details about a serious commercial truck wreck like this so soon after it happened. Unfortunately, it's also not too unusual for there to be few details weeks or months down the line. The images of the crash scene I'm seeing here show a pretty serious chain of events, and if authorities aren't able to dedicate the time, tools, and personnel needed for a serious truck wreck like this, my concern is they might miss something important.

That said, I've worked with departments all over the state who were more than capable of ensuring the victims and families would get the answers they deserved. Hopefully authorities here are taking those steps right now so those involved know the facts are in good hands.
