CHEROKEE COUNTY, TX (April 2, 2024) – Monday afternoon, Nicholas Schintgen was killed and Nelson Terrell was involved in a tractor-trailer crash.

The incident occurred just before 1:45 p.m., on the southbound lanes of US Highway 69 about five miles south of Rusk on March 25th.

Per reports, 44-year-old Schintgen was driving a southbound 2023 Dodge Ram van. Meanwhile, 38-year-old Terrell was driving a southbound 2011 Freightliner tractor-trailer at high rates of speed on the wet road.
