Last Saturday, DPS Troopers responded to FM 1910 for a fatal two-vehicle crash, approximately seven miles south of Jacksonville in Cherokee County. The driver of a 2006 Chevrolet towing a gooseneck trailer failed to yield the right of way from a private drive, turning west onto FM 1910, blocking both lanes of traffic. The driver of a 2003 Harley-Davidson Sportster was traveling east on FM 1910 and could not stop in time to avoid colliding with the towed trailer.
The driver of the Chevrolet was Rickie Sorrell, 71, of Jacksonville. The driver of the Harley-Davidson was David May, 50, of Jacksonville. They transported May to UT-Health East Texas–Tyler, where he died the next day.
