A Nacogdoches man was hospitalized Tuesday in a two-vehicle collision that left one person dead.
Around 7:15 a.m., a Freightliner 18-wheeler driven by Salvador A. Oliva, 65, of Edinburg collided with a 2020 Kenworth 18-wheeler driven by 40-year-old Lancaster resident Jessie Dale Cashion.
Cashion's truck was in the outside lane of the highway, turning into a private driveway, when the Oliva's truck smashed into the read end of the trailer Cashion was hauling.
The wreck happened on U.S. 59 just outside Garrison, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety and Texas Department of Transportation.
Olivia was killed in the crash, and was pronounced deceased by Rusk County Judge Jackie Risinger. His body was taken to a Nacogdoches funeral home.
Cashion and his co-driver, Nacogdoches resident Robert Allen Cain, 48, were both taken to Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital, and were in stable condition as of Tuesday. Both had been discharged from the hospital as of Wednesday, according to spokesperson Kim Barton.
