TERRY COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

52-year-old Martha Lou DePoyster of Brownfield was killed in a wreck on Sunday.

DPS tells us the accident involved a truck tractor semi-trailer and a minivan at the intersection of US 385 and CR 200, about 13 miles north of Brownfield.

Three children, a 3-year-old and two 9-year-olds were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

DPS says the minivan crossed the center stripe on a curve in the road. The semi driver tried to avoid the collision but was unable to. The semi rolled on its right side in the east ditch and the minivan came to rest upright in the northeast ditch.

Friends tell us Martha's husband, Craig DePoyster, has been left to care for their six children alone.

A Go Fund Me account has been established to help them pay for funeral and medical expenses.
