One dies in rollover accident

Services were pending Friday for a Greenville man, killed in an early morning accident in south Hunt County.

A Quinlan man was reported to still be in the hospital as of Friday afternoon, after having been critically injured in the one-vehicle rollover crash.

Trey Lee Kiker of Greenville was reported to have been at the wheel of the 2009 Chevrolet Silverado pickup when the accident occurred, according to Trooper David Clayton, the investigating officer with the Texas Department of Public Safety Office in Greenville.

Tanner Guyton of Quinlan was a passenger in the vehicle, which crashed shortly before 3 a.m. Friday.

Kiker was reported to have been driving southbound on U.S. Highway 69, just past Farm-To-Market Road 1564, when the truck left the roadway and hit a concrete culvert, causing it to roll over multiple times.

“We don’t even know how many times it flipped,” Clayton said.

Both of the victims were ejected. Kiker was pronounced dead at the scene, where his body was found about 100 feet away from where the pickup came to rest.

Clayton said Guyton appeared to have been ejected first and came to rest on a driveway along the roadside. Guyton was transported to Parkland Hospital in Dallas where at last report he was listed in critical condition.

“At the scene, there was alcohol present,” Clayton said. “They obviously were not wearing their seat belts and speed is probably going to be a factor.”

Services for Kiker were pending Friday with Coker-Mathews Funeral Home in Greenville.
