WOODVILLE – A two-vehicle crash in Woodville last week resulted in a fatality.
According to Capt. Jathan Borel, with the Woodville Police Department, a small, four-door Nissan Frontier, driven by Richard “Kerry” Winter, a 54-year-old Warren resident, was southbound on US 69 (Magnolia Street), near the intersection of US 287 (Pine Street) and Magnolia at approximately 12:40 p.m. on the afternoon of Wednesday, Oct. 4.
Winter crossed over into the turning lane at the intersection and struck the side of a Coca-Cola delivery vehicle. That vehicle was northbound and about to turn onto 287.
Winter was pronounced dead on the scene. The driver of the delivery truck was unharmed.
Woodville PD is leading the investigation, Borel said, with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) assisting with on-scene documentation.
This investigation is ongoing and there is no further information to report at this time.
