Highway 103 rollover wreck

ANGELINA COUNTY, Texas (KTRE) - Traffic on State Highway 103 East in Angelina County is slowing because of a one-vehicle rollover wreck that occurred in the 7500 block of the road Tuesday afternoon.

According to a press release, Texas Department of Public Safety troopers responded to and investigated the one-vehicle crash, which occurred at about 2:05 p.m. Tuesday.

The preliminary crash report shows that Charles Johnson Jr., 75, of Livingston, was driving a 2014 Freightliner truck that was towing a camper trailer east on SH 103 when the truck reportedly started to swerve to the right and out of the eastbound lane.

“The driver then over-corrected to the left and jackknifed, causing the truck and trailer to cross the roadway,” the press release stated. “The trailer then overturned.”

Traffic was backed up a considerable distance from the scene of the wreck, and vehicles were diverted onto the shoulder until the wreck was cleared.

Johnson and a passenger who was riding with him were not injured in the crash.
