Details at this time indicate that 42-year-old Harry Collins III of Tyler was in a Kia Sportage going along Highway 115. From oncoming lanes, it appears that a Nissan Titan was passing another vehicle and crossed the center line. This caused the Nissan and Collins's Kia to cross paths, and the vehicles crashed head-on.

Due to the collision, authorities say Collins succumbed to fatal injuries. The other driver reportedly had non-life-threatening injuries. Currently, authorities allege that the Nissan driver registered a .114 BAC following testing, and they allege the driver was intoxicated at the time of the crash. There appears to be a pending charge for intoxication manslaughter against that driver at the time of writing.

Right now, no further information can be confirmed.
