2 Killed in Accident, BEECH CREEK, November 24, 2019 - At approximately 5:55 pm on November 23, 2019, a black 2009 Dodge Ram 2500, driven by Jay Myers, 18, of Colmesneil, was west-bound on US-190 East. Myers allegedly crossed the center line and clipped an east-bound black 2016 Nissan Armada, driven by Lional Kenebrew, 36, of Newton. The impact caused Kenebrew's vehicle to leave the pavement to the right and roll. Myers' pickup slid into a red 2016 Ford Escape, driven by Zachary Riley, 28, of Livingston, that was sitting at the stop sign on Beech Creek Road. Kenebrew and a 13 year old male passenger were both ejected during the rollover and, sadly, both were killed.

Why Myers crossed the center line remains under investigation by the Highway Patrol. Justice of the Peace, Robert "Dooley" Johnson performed inquests at the scene.
