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.
