The dump truck, driven by Jacoby Kian Holyfield, 25, of Marshall, was east-bound on 190 and turned left to cross the west-bound lane to the area of construction, but failed to yield to White. White's pickup struck the back tires of the dump truck. Allegiance Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Troopers Darwon Evans and Donny Akers with the Texas Highway Patrol.
