An accident in Nacogdoches County has claimed the life of a 40-year-old man from Hearne, Texas.  The accident happened around seven o'clock last night. DPS says 40-year-old Steven Holder was driving north on highway 59 when his Toyota crossed into oncoming traffic. A Mack truck driven by Ronald Crofoot from Nacogdoches and a freightliner were headed south on 59. Holder crashed into them and was killed on impact. The Toyota flipped into a ditch and burst into flames. Crofoot and the driver of the freightliner were transported to the Nacogdoches Memorial. They both sustained neck and back injuries but were treated and released. Troopers said holder was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the accident.
