Investigators of yesterday’s fatal crash near Alvord have identified the victim as Donald Lee McDiffett, 51, of Alvord. According to DPS Trooper Shawn Younger, a 2010 Chevy HHR driven by McDiffett was crossing from the northbound lane of U.S. 81/287 attempting to turn left onto County Road 1596 when he pulled out in front of a southbound 18-wheel tractor-trailer and was hit broadside in the passenger side. The two vehicles skidded together for about 100 yards until the car veered off to the right, and the truck turned over on its passenger side. McDiffett died at the scene. The trucker, Jose Garcia of Houston, was not injured
