Silsbee, TX (September 16, 2020) – An accident reported on Sunday evening claimed one man’s life in the Silsbee area. Just before 8 p.m., on September 13, the Texas Department of Public Safety was called to the scene of an accident on Farm to Market Road 92.
Reports provided by local news sources show that a 1998 Chevrolet passenger vehicle was traveling north on Farm to Market Road 92 when the vehicle crossed over the center lines. After entering the southbound lanes, the Chevrolet collided head-on with a 2013 Kawasaki motorcycle, which was driven by 61-year-old Mark Randall Wallace. The driver of the Chevrolet, who was identified as 53-year-old Jerry Sangwin, fled the scene of the accident.
After the initial collision, the rider was struck by a 2008 Dodge pickup truck. Wallace, who was identified as a Silsbee High School teacher, sustained fatal injuries in the accident and was declared deceased at the scene.
Investigations surrounding the accident are currently underway.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of Mark Randall Wallace at this time.
