Debra Sue Cherry Killed, Christina Bloore, Aiden Sickler, Others Injured in Car Accident in Liberty County, TX
Liberty County, TX -- February 14, 2023, Debra Cherry was killed and Christina Bloore, Aiden Sickler, and others were hurt after a multi-car accident.
Initial details from the Department of Public Safety said that the incident happened at around 6:00 p.m. off the corner of FM 787 and CR-2184, several miles outside of Cleveland.
According to officials, a Dodge Ram traveling westbound on FM 787 somehow crashed with an eastbound Subaru Outback. The Subaru driver was identified as 69-year-old Debra Cherry. That vehicle then went into westbound lanes where it crashed with a GMC Acadia, then a Toyota Tundra.
Due to the series of collisions, Cherry sustained injuries which ultimately proved fatal. From the GMC, 32-year-old Christina Bloore and three children were transported to a Conroe hospital. The driver of the Toyota, 18-year-old Aiden Sickler, and his passenger were also taken to the hospital.
No further information about the crash can be confirmed at this time. Several weeks have gone by, and I was hoping to see there would be more information about what exactly happened here. Perhaps authorities are still hard at work behind the scenes, but the local media clearly hasn't felt the need to follow up.
The reason I say this is because a lack of information in the news is sometimes a sign of a lack of information period. Not every department dedicates the time, tools, and personnel to ensure nothing slips through the cracks. As a result, a staggering amount of families all across the state end up on their own search for answers. With so many lives affected here, my hope is authorities recognize how important it is to get the facts here and to see those families know they're getting the full story—especially if their loved one isn't around to speak on their own behalf.
