Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook:
Typical July weather Saturday and Sunday. Highs both days near 100° degrees. Feeling more like 101° to 104° thanks to humidity!
PITTSBURG (December 15, 2010)---Gregory Kuehmichel of Mineral Wells, who’s on a self-proclaimed “journey of faith” through Texas, was bound for Tyler when a vehicle struck his covered wagon between Pittsburg and Gilmer, killing his mules named "Courageous" and "Constance."
Kuehmichel was traveling along U.S. 271 and the Department of Public Safety says half of the wagon was on the highway when the accident happened Saturday morning.
The driver of the car that struck the wagon was treated and later released from a hospital.
Kuehmichel was not hurt, but his mules died and his covered wagon was destroyed.
He vowed to continue his journey, which in 2008 included a trip to Wisconsin, if he can get a new wagon and more mules.
