DPS Investigates Two Fatal Wrecks In Terry Co.

Investigators with the Department of Public Safety are looking into two fatal accidents in Terry County, just hours apart, but in the same location. 

DPS says a tractor trailer was headed south on U.S. 62/82 about four-miles south of Wellman around 4:20 a.m. Saturday, when the driver lost control. The semi slid across the road, into the median, and flipped once. The driver, 40-year-old Samuel Solis of Seminole was pronounced dead at the scene.

Then at 8:45 a.m., while investigators were still on the scene, a car smashed into a pick-up in the northbound lanes. Investigators say the pick-up was parked legally off the shoulder, and the car lost control and skidded sideways into it. The driver, 25-year-old Cassi Hoover of Odessa was killed. Her passenger was treated and released from Brownfield Medical Center.
