'Sarge' Summers death: Railroad Commissioner candidate dies in tragic crash after car smashes into tractor

A RAILROAD Commissioner candidate has died in a tragic crash after his car smashed into a tractor.

The driver of the car was identified as Marvin 'Sarge' Summers, 69. He was in the area for an event in his campaign for Texas Railroad Commissioner.

Midland Police crews responded to the scene at around 1.30pm on Tuesday afternoon.

They determined that a Cadillac Escalade had struck a truck tractor that was towing a cargo tank from behind.

Police found that the tractor had been in the outside lane and attempted to make a right-hand turn onto a private drive.

Summers failed to control his speed and crashed into the vehicle in front of him.

His next of kin have been notified and no other injuries were reported.
