TX Tow Truck Operator & Customers Killed

Our condolences to the family and acquaintances of tower Jimmy Blackburn and the family and acquaintances of his customers, Terry Lee Adams and Clint Ray Clifton.

Here's the KTBS News 3 story:

A tow truck operator and two customers were killed over the weekend when a tractor-trailer rig slammed into the truck on the shoulder of Interstate 20 near Marshall, Texas.

Texas state troopers said the 18-wheeler veered onto the eastbound shoulder just east of Marshall about 1:30 a.m. Sunday. It slammed into the flatbed tow truck, killing Marshall towing service operator Jimmy Blackburn and two customers, Terry Lee Adams of Alvarado and Clint Ray Clifton of Wolfe City.

Thank you for your condolences. By God's Grace our family will work through this. Terry was a wonderful son, father, brother, uncle, and friend to all those who knew him. We don't know of anyone who could honestly say they ever seen him without a smile on his face. He was an inspiration to all and will be dearly missed. Once again thank you for your sincere thoughts. Marty Dennis (brother-in-law)

Clint and Terry were such wonderful men. My husband worked with Terry for nine years and was best friends with Clint for over twenty. Our thoughts and prayers go to Terry's and Clint's families and to the family of the tow truck driver - we know they are dealing with a difficult loss, as well. It's an unbelievable tragedy - three strong healthy men gone in the blink of an eye. They are in our hearts and thoughts forever.
