Fort Hood Soldier Dies in Wreck

By  | 

Services are tomorrow for a Fort Hood soldier who died in an East Texas traffic accident the same weekend he returned from Iraq.

Twenty-two-year-old Sergeant Casey Wayne Jones of Troup died early Sunday in a one vehicle wreck.

The Department of Public Safety says the accident happened about six miles south of Troup.

DPS says it appears the vehicle veered off the right side of the road, Jones overcorrected and the truck flipped several times.

The obituary, provided by Cottle Funeral Home, says the Fourth Infantry Division soldier had just returned Friday from his second tour of duty in Iraq.

The funeral will be held at Taylor's Chapel Church in the community of Tecula, near Troup.
