WOODVILLE – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is investigating a fatal hit-and-run auto-pedestrian crash that occurred in Woodville last Friday.
According to Sgt. Shana Clark with the DPS, the body of Jason Williams, a 41-year-old Jasper man, was discovered on the side of US 69, south of Woodville, near Woodville Pellets on Friday night. Clark said Williams was hit and killed before 8 p.m. that same day. Reportedly, Williams was hit by a Dodge Ram pickup.
DPS troopers, on Saturday, were able to find the truck involved and its driver, 18-year-old Raygan Picou, of Sour Lake.
