Man struck by truck while changing tire


A North Texas man is killed by a truck while he was changing his tire near Interstate 35 late Thursday morning. Temple police responded to the accident on the service road of Interstate 35 between mile markers 305 and 306 at 11:55 a.m.

Police say a white 2013 Chevrolet SUV stopped on the side of the service road, and the driver, 69-year-old William Craig Holland, exited the vehicle to change a tire. A driver of a red Jeep SUV also stopped on the side of the road to offer Holland help.

Meanwhile, a white Chevrolet pickup traveling northbound did not see the two SUV's stopped in the roadway, or the pedestrian working on the vehicle. The driver of the pickup attempted to avoid the crash, but was unable to avoid colliding with both SUVs and Holland.

Witnesses rendered aid to Holland, but were unsuccessful. Holland was pronounced dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace G.W. Ivey.

No other injuries were reported from the accident. Temple Police Department Traffic Accident Reconstruction Unit is conducting the investigation into the crash.
