A wrong-way accident killed four people, one being Wise County Justice of the Peace, Terri Johnson, over the weekend near Decatur. According to NBC DFW, the accident took place on Saturday evening on Highway 287 after a Passat, driven by Judge Johnson, attempted to drive southbound in a northbound lane. The Passat collided with an SUV, killing three passengers. A four-year-old girl from the SUV was airlifted to a nearby children’s hospital. Investigators found no evidence of alcohol being involved, and are now waiting for the autopsy report, which will hopefully shed some light as to what caused this tragic accident.
