Boyd, TX — Two people were injured outside of Boyd last Friday morning, December 19, after a serious head-on car accident. It happened at about 10:30 a.m. in the morning and the victims were identified as Karen Backus, 54, and Andrew Erickson, 26.
Police said that Erickson had been driving his Nissan pickup truck that Friday along Highway 114, headed west. About two miles from Boyd, however, he lost control and veered into the eastbound lanes where he crashed head-on into a Nissan Maxima.
The Maxima was driven by Karen Backus, who was injured and had to be taken to Wise Regional Health System. The accident injured Erickson more seriously, apparently, and he required medical treatment as well. Right now, it’s not really clear why Erickson lost control of his truck that morning, but police said they’d look further into it.
