A 56-year-old New Mexico woman was pronounced dead at the scene of a one-vehicle crash on State Highway 176 Tuesday morning after law enforcement officials say the vehicle she was traveling in rolled several times.
According to officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety, the accident was reported at 8:40 a.m. at a location on Highway 176, approximately 7/10 of a mile from mile marker 306, inside Howard County.
An â€śunusualâ€ť weather system that brought welcome relief from baking temperatures and parched conditions may stick around a day or two longer, officials say.
Crossroads residents have been sighing in relief the past few days because of the system, which has slashed temperatures and brought some much-needed precipitation to the area.
National Weather Service Meteorologist David Henrig said the cause of all this welcome weather is an upper-level low pressure system that's slowly making its way through this area.
