WOOD CONTY, Texas (KETK) – One person is dead following a one-vehicle wreck where the driver was ejected and pronounced dead at the hospital.
At 3 a.m. Saturday, troopers responded to a fatal crash on FM 1254, approximately five miles west of Mineola.
Preliminary reports indicated the driver of a 2008 Ford F-150, Robbie Lee Loftin, 59, was traveling south on FM 1254 when the driver failed to navigate a curve in the roadway.
Loftin overcorrected after leaving the roadway, causing the vehicle to go across both lanes, into the ditch where they hit a large oak tree.
Loftin was unrestrained and ejected from his truck. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The crash remains under investigation.
