Deadly Crash Near Vernon Kills An Electra Woman
An Electra woman is killed in a one-vehicle rollover accident this morning east of Vernon on Highway 287. DPS troopers say 84- year old Johnny Anzaldua was driving a 2001 GMC Jimmy* when he apparently swerved to avoid hitting an animal. The suv went into the median ... and then he overcorrected.... sending the suv across the road as it rolled at least two times. Anzaldua survived the wreck -- but his 85- year old wife, Guadalupe did not. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Mr. Anzaldua's undergoing treatment at United Regional... and his condition has stablized. Troopers say both were wearing their seat belts.
