Ashley Coffin, 24, and Jason Hill were involved in a fatal head-on collision in Cleburne, Texas. Law enforcement believes that the accident occurred near the intersection of Texas 174 and Old Foamy Road at about 7 PM. Two vehicles collided at the intersection head-on-a flatbed truck and a Dodge Ram. The driver and one of the passengers in the Dodge died from their injuries-Coffin and Hill. In addition, there were three children that were younger than 4 years old in the Dodge. They were taken to the hospital but do not seem to have critical injuries. Two passengers in the flatbed truck were also taken to the hospital but also do not seem to have critical injuries. It is as of yet unknown what caused the accident. We wonder if this could have been a case of distracted driving or failure to yield right of way. We also wonder if this case could trigger a wrongful death claim.
