POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A 43-year-old Spring died Tuesday as a result of injuries he suffered in a two-vehicle wreck that occurred in Polk County near the intersection of State Highway 146 and FM 2610.

According to a press release, Texas Department of Public Safety troopers investigated the wreck. The preliminary crash report shows that at about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, a 2001 Nissan passenger car driven by Jonathan Hemphill failed to yield the right of way at the stop sign on FM 2610 and drove into the path of a 2015 Chevrolet passenger van that was heading south on SH 146.
