Elderly Driver Dies in Crash on SH-208 in Scurry County


SAN ANGELO – An elderly Colorado City man has died following a two vehicle crash on State Highway 208 in Scurry County.  

According to information from the Texas Department of Public Safety, 88-year-old Ferrell Parker of Colorado City was northbound in his 2004 Ford F-150 about 4 miles north of Dunn on Oct. 4 at around 6 a.m.  

At the same time, a 2022 Dodge 5500 truck towing a semi-trailer driven by 43-year-old Jesse Amancio Garcia of Cleburne was southbound on the same stretch of road.  

According to the crash report, Parker's F-150 drove into the southbound lane.  Garcia attempted to avoid hitting Parker's vehicle by driving into the barrow ditch but Parker's pickup stuck the Dodge anyway.  

Parker was transported to University Medical Center with live threatening injuries and died at the hospital.  

Garcia was not injured.  The weather was clear and dry and both drivers were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.
