Two Freestone County families are in mourning this holiday season after a two-car collision last week left one dead and one in critical condition. Landon Gebhard, 17, was killed Thursday, Dec. 21, when his 2002 BMW hit a vehicle driven by Lilly Taylor, 22, on FM 27.

Reports taken by DPS Trooper Matthew Poole show Gebhard was traveling east on FM 27 when he began to overtake another vehicle in a no-passing zone.
