Kay Lackey, 62, of Poolville was driving a van westbound on Texas 199 about 10:40 a.m. when she attempted to turn left onto Farm Road 920. Department of Public Safety Trooper Mitchell Collins said Lackey turned in front of a Buick Enclave traveling eastbound on 199.

The Enclave was driven by Edwina Norris, 41, of North Richland Hills.

Her vehicle hit the van on the passenger side, and both vehicles spun into 18-wheelers before landing in nearby medians.

The van hit a truck, driven by William Mullally, 57, of Jacksboro, that was traveling westbound on 199, while the Enclave spun into a truck on FM 920, which was driven by Schuyler Long, 25, of Euless. Neither truck driver was injured.

The van eventually came to rest in the median of 199. Lackey suffered severe head injuries and was transported via helicopter to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth.

Norris’ Enclave ended up in the triangular median separating 199 and 920. She was taken by ground ambulance to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Azle. There were no passengers in either vehicle.

At least a dozen people from a neighboring gas station and nearby homes gathered at the wreck scene. Texas 199 was shut down for about 30 minutes so the helicopter could land.
