STEPHENS COUNTY (KFDX/KJTL) — Family members have set funeral services for the Iowa Park woman who died in a head-on collision in Stephens County, Texas, on Friday, May 15.

The graveside services for Mercedes “Sadie” Elaine Fulton will be 4 p.m. Saturday, May 30 at Highland Cemetery, and a celebration of life will follow the service at French Country Meadows at 5 p.m.


ORIGINAL STORY: Officials with the Department of Public Safety in Abilene are investigating a Friday afternoon fatality that killed an Iowa Park woman.

According to Abilene DPS Sgt. Fred Biddle, Iowa Park resident Mercedes Elaine Fulton, 26, died in a wreck on State Highway 67 three miles north of Breckenridge in Stephens County, Texas.

Officials responded to the call about 4:30 p.m. Friday.

Biddle states Fulton was driving a 2016 Chevrolet passenger vehicle north on State Highway 67 on the wrong side of the road.

Breckenridge resident Jacob Aaron Herring, 37, was southbound on the highway in a 2019 Chevrolet pickup and veered left into the northbound lane to avoid hitting Fulton when she veered right to avoid the crash, resulting in the head-on collision.

Fulton was pronounced dead at the scene.

Fulton was wearing a seatbelt while Herring was not during the collision, and Herring is listed as stable with non-incapacitating injuries at Breckenridge Memorial Hospital.

Biddle stated the crash is under investigation.
