Two people have died after a multi-vehicle crash Monday afternoon that closed U.S. Highway 380 in McKinney for several hours.
According to Sgt. Lonny Haschel with the Texas Department of Public Safety, state troopers were called to the scene of the crash, along Highway 380 about one-quarter of a mile east of County Road 330, at about 2:15 p.m.
Haschel said a Ford Escape SUV traveling west sideswiped a Dodge Ram pickup which then crossed into the eastbound lanes and hit a Chevrolet Suburban head-on. The Suburban was then struck by an eastbound tanker truck which rolled onto its side after the crash.
The driver of the Suburban – Alfred R. Mock, 86, of Princeton – died at the scene, Haschel said. A passenger in the Suburban – Angela Mock, 60, also of Princeton – was transported to Medical City McKinney and later died from her injuries.
Two other passengers in the Suburban – Billy Mock, 81, of Princeton, and Timothy Mock, 31, of Midlothian – were transported to nearby hospitals for treatment of their injuries. Billy Mock's injuries were considered serious, Haschel said, while Timothy Mock's injuries were not life-threatening.
The driver of the Escape – Danielle Whitman, 17, of Victoria – was transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the Ram pickup, a 16-year-old male from Princeton, was taken by air ambulance to Medical Center of Plano with serious injuries. Two 16-year-old male passengers in the Ram were taken by ground ambulance with non life-threatening injuries. And a 17-year-old passenger in the Ram was taken by ground ambulance with serious injuries.
The driver of the tanker truck – Jeffery Hollomon, 55, of Farmersville – was taken to the hospital by ground ambulance with non life-threatening injuries. A passenger in the truck – Sandra Hollomon, 57, of Farmersville – was also transported with non life-threatening injuries.
The investigation into the crash is ongoing, Haschel said.
Highway 380 reopened just before 9 p.m. Monday.
