Decatur woman killed in wreck


A 70-year-old Decatur woman was killed Saturday morning in a wreck on County Road 4227 just south of U.S. 81/287 a couple of miles south of Decatur. Department of Public Safety Cpl. Jeff Johnson said the woman was northbound on the county road around 9:45 when she ran off the west side of the road, overcorrected, went into a sideskid, left the east side of the roadway and rolled her SUV at least two or three times. The driver was ejected. Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Jan Morrow pronounced the woman dead at the scene. A nearby resident said the driver was going “extremely fast” as she passed by the house just moments before the crash. Johnson said it is obvious the woman was traveling at an unsafe speed. Other than that, the investigation would continue into the cause of the wreck. The woman’s identity is being withheld pending notification of family.
