Single Vehicle Accident Claims Life
One person is dead after a crash in Carson County on Thursday morning.
The Department of Public Saftey says a 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander driving three miles north of Panhandle on State Highway 207 was traveling at an unsafe speed for rainy conditions.
The vehicle hit a pool of water on the highway, causing the driver to lose control and hydroplane.
The vehicle rolled onto the driver’s side and into a drainage ditch, which had about three feet of water.
Multiple good samaritans stopped and helped move the vehicle upright.
The passenger 54-year-old Pamela Peterson of Borger died on scene from injuries she received in the crash.
The driver 50-year-old Linda Conley from Stinnett, was taken to the hospital in Amarillo with non-life-threatening injuries, where she was treated and later released.
The crash remains under investigation.
