Jasper woman dies in head-on crash

Posted: Updated:

A Jasper woman died Friday morning in a head-on collision with an 18-wheeler on Highway 62 in Jasper county. It happened on Highway 62 just south of FM 822 near Buna.

A dispatcher with the Texas Department of Public Safety tells 12 News HD that Sherry White Meadows, 49, died when her car veered over the center line and collided with the truck.

The DPS says the two occupants in the truck, Troy Phillips and Dontez Jones, both from Evergreen, LA., were hospitalized with internal injuries and are in stable condition. 

A typo in an earlier version of this story implied that a DPS dispatcher died in the accident. That is not the case and 12 News apologizes for the confusion.
