There was a deadly crash involving a semi-truck in Amarillo, Texas on August 11, 2022.  During the crash, a semi-truck pulling a trailer was traveling southbound on Farm-to-Market Road 1061.  The semi-truck veered into oncoming traffic and struck a U-Haul truck that was driving in the opposite lane of travel.  A pickup truck then collided with the back of the U-Haul.  The semi-truck and U-Haul became engulfed in fire as a result of the crash.  The driver of the U-Haul was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision.  He has been identified as Sonny Reynolds, of Panama City, Florida.  The other two drivers were taken to Amarillo Northwest Texas Hospital for treatment.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by this deadly crash.
