BANQUETE - A man is dead following a crash along Highway 44 near County Road 93. According to DPS Troopers, around 1:30 Wednesday morning, the driver of a pick-up truck was heading westbound along Highway 44 when he lost control and veered off the road.
When he over-corrected, the truck rolled back onto the highway, and ended up in the left lane. The driver of an 18-wheeler did not see the truck in time and smashed into it.
It took crews about two hours to get the man out of the pick-up. 18-year-old Robert A. West-Warburton was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver and passenger of the big rig were not injured. They were hauling headstones from Georgia to Alice.
