2 Fatally Struck in Two-Vehicle Collision near Thorndale

MILAM COUNTY, TX (September 1, 2023) – Sunday morning, Tyesha Nikole Tanner and a teen boy were killed in a 2-car accident on FM 486.

The incident occurred around 10:40 a.m., just north of Thorndale.

According to reports, a woman was driving a 2012 Kia Sorento south on FM-486. She then stopped to allow traffic to pass before making a left turn into a church parking lot.

There, the driver of a 2016 Dodge Ram rear-ended the Kia. Due to the extent of injuries sustained, medics pronounced both occupants inside the Kia Sorento dead at the scene.

Police later identified the deceased victims as 42-year-old Tanner, of Georgetown and a 14-year-old boy.

Authorities closed off the surrounding area for a brief time during cleanup and preliminary duties. At this time, police ruled out alcohol or drugs as potential factors.
