Snyder teen killed in rollover

April 11, 2011

A Snyder teen was killed early this morning following a one-vehicle rollover north of Big Spring, according to officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Tyler Lance Sawyer, 18, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, approximately 12 miles north of Big Spring on Highway 350.
According to Operator Matt Cockerell with the regional DPS office in Midland, the accident occurred at approximately 1:46 a.m. when a south-bound 1998 Chevrolet sports utility vehicle driven by Sawyer left the road.

“According to the accident report, Sawyer veered off the roadway, going into the barrow ditch on the side of the road,” Cockerell said. “He attempted to bring the vehicle out of the ditch and overcorrected, causing the vehicle to overturn and roll.”

Cockerell said Sawyer was pronounced dead at the scene at approximately 2:45 a.m. by Howard County Justice of the Peace Kathryn Wiseman.

“The investigating trooper noted in the report Sawyer was not wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash,” Cockerell said. “The weather report for the time of the accident was dry and clear, and the trooper has not listed any other contributing factors.”
