Two people were killed in a three-vehicle accident on Farm Road 730 at County Road 4374 between Decatur and Boyd Tuesday evening.
Seth Evans, 23, of Boyd and his passenger Makayla Stoff, 18, of Azle died at the scene.
The accident occurred shortly after 5 p.m. A white Cadillac driven by Glenda Hogan, 69, of Decatur was stopped in the southbound lane of FM 730 to turn left onto CR 4374. A gray Ford F150 traveling southbound driven by James Blackwood, 47, of Decatur clipped the back of the Cadillac and then went into the northbound lane, striking head on a northbound Ford Escort, driven by Evans.
“The gray F150 was traveling southbound from behind and didn’t see [the Cadillac] until the last second and starts to swerve over,” said Department of Public Safety Trooper Zeb Siebeneck. “His front right hits the Cadillac’s back left pushing the Cadillac off the road. After clipping the rear of the other car, [the F150] continues on into the Ford Escort. It was an instant stop for both vehicles.”
Blackwood was taken to Medical City Denton by ground ambulance.
Hogan and her passenger, Curtis Carter, 45, were not injured.
FM 730 was closed for several hours at CR 4374. Traffic was diverted through a private driveway.
