Crash Near Big Spring Kills Solo Driver


BIG SPRING, TX – A crash near a construction zone in Big Spring killed an Oklahoma man last Wednesday.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, on Jan. 12, troopers with the Texas DPS were dispatched to I-20 eastbound for the report of a major crash involving a truck and an 18-wheeler.

When they arrived, the troopers discovered a 2017 Ford F-250 that had crashed into the back of a 2019 Freightliner truck tractor pulling a trailer. 

The driver of the semi-truck was uninjured in the crash but the driver of the F-250, 63-year-old Teddy Mack Hillis of Noble, Oklahoma, was pronounced dead on the scene.

The troopers believe that the Semi was stopped on the side of the road because of traffic in a road construction zone and was struck from behind by the F-250.

Both drivers were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.
