Investigators believe the driver of a pickup truck may have fallen asleep at the wheel resulting in a head-on collision on FM 2147 West at the Rocky Road intersection in Marble Falls.

According to the police report, the accident happened just after 5:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17 on the roadway less than a mile from the U.S. 281 bridge intersection.

Caleb Taylor, 27, of College Station was driving a 2003 Chevrolet pickup truck, traveling north towards U.S. 281, according to the Marble Falls police report.

Katherine Eaton, 53, of Horseshoe Bay was driving a 2017 Cadillac SUV, traveling south towards Horseshoe Bay.
