A woman is dead after the vehicle she was driving was involved in a collision just south of the U.S. 281 and State Highway 16 y-intersection.
DPS officials said Mary Laverne Bevers, 48, of Windthorst was attempting to cross the northbound lane of U.S. 281 to enter the driveway of her home when she was hit by a tractor-trailer traveling south in the northbound lanes.
She was ejected from the vehicle and struck by the remainder of the semi.
Bevers was later pronounced dead at the scene.
The DSP investigation into this crash is on-going.
