Jonathan Hernandez7 months ago

The Denton Record-Chronicle is reporting that a 74-year-old Whitesboro woman was killed in a multiple-vehicle accident on Thursday morning in Pilot Point.

Details about the Fatal Accident in Pilot Point

According to the Pilot Point Police Department, Naomi Walker was driving a 2011 Ford Focus heading north on US Highway 377 at about 7:30 a.m. Thursday morning when a 1994 GMC pickup truck that was pulling a trailer crossed the center line, sideswiped another vehicle, and then slid into Walker’s car, killing the victim.

Police from Pilot Point and firefighters responded to the three-vehicle accident that happened near the 1900 block of US 377, as well as units from the Texas Department of Public Safety, Tioga Police, and first responders from Aubrey police and fire.

34-year-old Manuel Sandoval-Martinez was identified as the driver of the pickup truck, 16 year-old Morgen Klohn was driving the first vehicle – a 2015 Toyota Camry that was the first vehicle to have been hit by the pickup truck.

Sandoval-Martinez was taken to the Denton Regional Medical Center with serious injuries. A passenger in that vehicle was also taken to the hospital with what appeared to have been minor injuries. The teenager of the other vehicle was evaluated at the scene of the accident but refused medical help, according to police.

Walker was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. At this point in the investigation, it is unclear why Sandoval-Martinez’s truck and trailer crossed over the center line to begin with.
