Man killed during accident on Highway 183 identified


A Lometa man was killed during an accident that occurred at 1:20 p.m. on Highway 183, 5 miles south of Lometa, between Lometa and Lampasas Tuesday afternoon.

68-year-old George William Reed was identified as the man who died.

DPS Spokesman Harpin Myer said the accident involved two dump trucks operated by Lampasas County employees and a pickup towing a boat trailer.

Reed was driving a dump truck northbound on Highway 183, when a witness reported to troopers that one of truck's front tires blew out.

The dump truck crossed into the southbound lane and sideswiped a pickup truck towing a boat trailer before hitting a second dump truck almost head on.

Reed was pronounced dead at the scene. The other drivers received non-life threatening injuries.
