Bokchito Woman Killed in Texas Crash

7-16-05 - A 75-year-old Bokchito woman died Saturday in a crash on Highway 75 in Denison, just south of the Texas state line. Denison police say Florena Lauderdale died at the scene of the accident.

Police say Lauderdale was headed north on Highway 75 in her bronco when a truck tried to pass her. She apparently did not see that vehicle and drifted into the other lane. She lost control of her SUV and overcorrected, before flipping several times in the median.

Lauderdale died at the scene. The driver of the truck was not injured.
