DPS Will Investigate Teen's Accident

Investigators are still hoping to talk to17 year old Jeremy Traylor about the night he was run over by a vehicle in Nacogdoches County. That happened last weekend after he left a party.

Traylor had surgery Monday night in Tyler and remains in critical,but stable condition.

The DPS has become the lead investigating agency. Authorities are classifying the offense as 'failure to seek and render aid.' Sheriff Thomas Kerss said, " Some of us have different specialties and certainly when it comes to traffic and accidents , motor vehicle investigations, things of that nature, DPS employees are better trained and equipped overall to perform these types of investigations."

The Sheriff tells us the scope of the investigation could change at any time, but right now it's being treated as a motor vehicle incident.
