An employee of Daniel’s New and Used Tire on U.S. Highway 67 was killed early Monday in a five-vehicle accident on his way to work.

The man, Jerry Lynn Lamb, 51, of Texarkana, Ark., was in a maroon Saturn that was westbound on U.S. Highway 67 (West Seventh Street) attempting to turn into his workplace, said Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Michael Ferguson.

The accident occurred about 8:08 a.m. A stretch of West 7th Street between Kings Highway and the accident remained blocked and traffic was detoured until about 11:30 a.m.

Two people in other vehicles were taken to local hospitals with injuries, Ferguson said .

The accident remains under investigation. But Troopers believe the victim’s vehicle was struck by two different vehicles.
