Community to gather to remember Silsbee teen killed in weekend accident

Posted: Updated:
Two gatherings, one for students and another for the community, are planned to remember a Silsbee High School student who died in an accident over the weekend.

Jarmarcus Myers, 18, lost his life in an accident on Sunday.  Students will gather in his memory Tuesday at 7:20 a.m. at the football stadium.  A community-wide gathering will take place Thursday at the stadium at 7:30 p.m.

The accident happened around 9 a.m. Sunday on FM 418 west of Silsbee. According to a spokesperson for the DPS, Myers was the driver of a 2001 Ford truck that was traveling eastbound on FM 418. Troopers say Myers passed another vehicle in a no passing zone striking a 2008 Dodge truck head-on.

Myers was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Dodge truck, Michael Thompson, 48, of Buna, was taken to Christus Hospital St. Elizabeth in Beaumont with serious injuries.  Three other passengers in the Dodge truck were also taken to Christus Hospital St. Elizabeth with unknown injuries.

This accident is still under investigation.
