Texas Department of Public Safety officials said a Gordonville man was killed last weekend after his vehicle left the roadway and crashed in a roadside ditch.
Staff Sgt. Mark Tackett said Cameron Denton, 31, was traveling north on U.S. Highway 377 shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday when his vehicle crossed over the southbound lanes and left the roadway.
“The vehicle struck a large concrete culvert,” Tackett said. “The driver was pronounced dead on scene.”
Tackett said he did not know whether Denton took corrective action or whether intoxication or impairment may have played a factor. The DPS sergeant said Denton was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the wreck. No other motorists or vehicles were involved.
“It's always important to remember to buckle up — every seat, every trip,” Tackett said.
