CHEROKEE COUNTY, Texas (KETK)- A multi-vehicle crash on Tuesday near Troup led officials to close two lanes of Highway 110, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The wreck happened on Highway 110 south of CR 4807. The closures were made to allow authorities to carry out their investigation.

According to information from DPS, a green John Deere tractor pulling a disc was travelling north on 110. A black Ford F-150 was travelling north behind the tractor. A silver Ford excursion was traveling south on 110.

DPS said the driver of the F-150 failed to control his speed and struck the back of the disc. This caused the F-150 to come to a stop facing south in the southbound lane. The tractor came to a stop facing west in the southbound lane.

After the initial collision, the Excursion travelled through the crash scene striking the tractor causing it to roll over. The Excursion came to a stop across both lanes facing east.
