A second person has died after a wreck involving a wagon train in Haywood County.

Family members say Boney Summey passed away early Sunday morning. He suffered critical brain injuries when a pickup truck hit several horse-drawn wagons in the Jonathan Creek area on September 1, 2017.

Jason Messer, 40, also died in the crash.

Summey's wife of 37 years, Teresa, says a clot had formed, “and there was nothing they could do.”

No charges have been filed in connection with the accident. The District Attorney's Office continues its investigation now that the accident is a double fatality.

Funeral services for Boney Summey will be held at 1 p.m. Friday at the Canton Chapel of Wells Funeral Home. Burial will follow at Crawford/Ray Memorial Gardens. Family will receive friends from 4 until 8 pm Thursday at the funeral home.
