Traffic Crash O & C in Taylor County

Traffic Crash O & C in Taylor County  Friday, April 19, 2024


We have an update on a recent traffic accident.  On Monday, April 15th at approximately 7:19 a.m. the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a two-vehicle accident with injuries near the intersection of County Road O and County Road C in the Town of Deer Creek. Fire and Ambulance services were also dispatched.


Investigation into the cause of the accident indicates the driver of a white van was traveling northbound on County Road C and drifted across the center line and into the south bound lane striking a black car that was traveling south bound. Preliminary findings indicate that the driver of the van had fallen to sleep which caused him to drift across the center line and into the path of the south bound vehicle.


Names are being withheld pending the investigation. The driver of the van sustained minor injuries, the driver of the black car was in critical condition and at the time of this Taylor County Sheriff Department release we have not been updated on that drivers medical condition.
