A Bangs woman is dead and her husband was seriously injured in a head-on collision Sunday morning on US Hwy. 281.

The accident happened shorty after 10 a.m. about 4.9 miles north of Morgan Mill.

Peggy Mcgary, 76, died at the scene and her husband Richard Mcgary, 75, was transported by air to Harris Methodist Fort Worth Hospital in critical condition. 

According to an accident report issued by DPS, the Mcgarys were traveling north in a Chevrolet Malibu when they crossed over the center stripe and struck an international truck tractor pulling a box trailer head on.

The driver of the truck, Jesse Kruger, 40, of Jonesborough, was taken to Texas Health Stephenville where he was treated for minor injuries and released.
