A 76-year-old Woodville man died in a three-vehicle accident that occurred on U.S. Highway 69 five miles south of Colmesneil Wednesday afternoon.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety accident report, the accident occurred at 1:22 p.m. Wednesday. A 2009 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Joshua Garrett Kirkpatrick, 25, of Woodville and a 2002 Dodge Ram drive by James Oliver Nichols were both northbound on US 69.
