Taylor police are investigating a collision that resulted in the death of a man Monday morning in on the city’s loop.
At 5:45 a.m. June 1, the Taylor Police Department received a call reporting the collision. The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2001 Honda was being driven by Dillon Patrick Coy, 24, of Bremond.

Coy was pronounced deceased on the scene. Wells sustained minor injuries and was transported to Seton Williamson County Medical Center. The accident marks the Taylor’s first fatal collision in 2020.
