ABILENE, TX – A 48 year old Ovalo man died from injuries sustained in an early morning crash. 48 year old Ronald Wesley Vaughn was traveling north on Winter’s Fwy. at around 5:27 a.m. Thursday, June 22, 2017. As he approached the N. 10th overpass, his vehicle, 2007 Chevrolet Silverado truck, hit the guard rail causing it to flip over the rail and eventually come to rest on its roof, in the median, between the North and Southbound lanes. Mr. Vaughn suffered life-threatening injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene by Justice of the Peace, Sparky Dean.

North bound traffic was diverted for a short time for crews to work the scene. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash and the investigation into the cause continues.
