LONGVIEW, Texas (BP) — Senior pastor Glynn Stone Jr. of Mobberly Baptist Church in Longview, Texas, died in a one-car crash Thursday (March 19) in Longview.
“We know this news is shocking and hard to understand. Processing this information is likely confusing and painful, and we would be remiss to ignore the fact that there is a plethora of emotions among you,” the church said in a statement posted at mobberly.org. “In times like these, we believe trusting the Lord and turning to Him in prayer is the best response.”
The Longview Police Department was still compiling the accident report Friday, a police spokesperson told Baptist Press, and could give no details of the crash.
Stone was pronounced dead about 5:15 p.m. Thursday at Longview Regional Medical Center, the Longview News-Journal reported. Stone was alone in the car during the afternoon accident. His wife Angie was with him at the hospital when he was pronounced dead, according to the newspaper.
“It was a one-vehicle wreck,” the News-Journal quoted B.H. Jameson, Gregg County Precinct 1 justice of the peace. “For whatever reason, [Stone] veered off of the road at Alpine Road and hit a bridge column.”
