Fatal Crash Outside Of Wellington

A fatal car crash took place early Friday morning in Collingsworth county.  

Texas Highway Patrol Troopers were called at 1:00 am on Friday to a 2018 Toyota 4Runner landing in a ditch southbound of Country Road 180, just outside of Wellington. 

Crash details include the driver of the vehicle losing control before entering a side skid that led to the car flipping over multiple times and landing in the ditch, ejecting the unsecured driver before the vehicle stopped on its side back on the road. 

The driver, 57-year-old Keith Wright of Garland, Texas was pronounced dead at the scene by Collingsworth Justice of the Peace Cliff Waller.

The crash remains under investigation.
