What Happened

Authorities are investigating a crash that killed one person involved at Trinity River Bridge near Shepard, TX on January 15th, 2024. Police say the incident happened just after 8 a.m. Investigators believe a Toyota lost control for unclear reasons while headed southbound on Hwy 59. Upon doing so, the vehicle is said to have been struck by a tractor-trailer. Behind the vehicles was a second tractor-trailer, which was in the process of slowing down to avoid colliding with the wrecked vehicles. As that vehicle slowed, reports say it was struck by a tractor-trailer and the crash also involved a Ford F-150 and Nissan sedan. A passenger in the Ford, identified as 37-year-old Selina Gilchriest, was reportedly outside the truck attempting to help those involved in the crash when she was struck by one of the vehicles in the impact. Reports say Gilchriest was fatally injured while others were hospitalized with undisclosed injuries. Additional information was not available.
