Crash claims life of Grapeland man
GROVETON – On Friday, March 17, at approximately 9:30 p.m., the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to a one vehicle rollover crash on US 287 outside of Groveton, in Trinity County. The crash occurred just North of Highway 94. A 1995 Ford Ranger pickup truck was traveling northbound on US 287. For an unknown reason, the driver veered off the roadway to the right. In an attempt to get the vehicle back onto the road, the driver over-corrected which caused the vehicle to rollover several times before coming to rest. The driver, 18-year-old Nicholas Collins of Grapeland, Texas, was transported by medical helicopter to Conroe Regional hospital. Collins was not wearing a seatbelt and did not survive his injuries. This is an ongoing crash investigation and there are no further details to be released.
