An East Texas man is dead following an accident Monday morning in Shelby County.

Twenty-five-year-old Brian Williford of Center was killed when his pickup rear-ended a tractor trailer rig on Highway 84, about three miles south of Center.

Investigators say the rig had stopped to make a left hand turn when Williford came over a hill and hit the rig's trailer.
