May 17, 2019 - A property off FM 2468 just near Loop 500 was the scene of several fires Wednesday, May 15, 2019, which involved a boat and two travel trailers and a lawn mower.

Center Fire Department firemen began fighting the fire after they were dispatched at 11:24am, dragging hoses to a location in the middle of the flaming objects.

Firemen were able to knock back the flames, putting out the boat and the campers in a short time. 

According to the Center Fire Department the owner of the property, Bobby Adams, was working on his boat motor when a fire ignited. The fire then spread from the boat to both of the travel trailers.

It appeared the owner moved the boat from in between the trailers with a tractor; however, all had already caught on fire.

May 16, 2019 - Loop 500 and the intersection of FM 2468 was the scene of a two-vehicle crash involving a white SUV and a pickup truck which was part of a construction crew resurfacing portions of Shelby County roadways.

Texas Department of Public Safety State (DPS) Troopers were dispatched to the location in the morning on May 15, 2019.

According to Texas DPS Trooper Jonathan Stinson, at around 8:15am a white 2019 GMC pickup truck owned by Lion Mark Construction of St. Louis Missouri and driven by Megan Christina Reynolds, 18, of Missouri was southbound on State Loop 500.

A white 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by Deborah Alain Murray, 64, of Timpson was also southbound at that time, and as a result of the unsafe lane change, struck the driver's side of the pickup truck.

Reynolds and Murray were transported by ambulance to Nacogdoches Medical Center for treatment of possible injuries. Reynolds' passenger Mindy Lynn Hendrn, 25, of Arkansas was taken by ambulance to Nacogdoches Medical Center - Shelby Emergency Department for possible injuries.

Reynolds was issued a citation for turn when unsafe.
