A combination of very strong winds, falling temperatures and frozen precipitation will make Wednesday and Wednesday night dangerous for motorists. Freezing rain and sleet will change to snow before ending late Wednesday or early Thursday. Wind chills of 5 to 10 degrees...with air temperatures in the low 20s...can be expected. Roads will be icy Thursday morning but should melt during the day as skies clear and temperatures rise above freezing.
7-27-05 - A Pauls Valley man was killed early this morning by a drunk driver going the wrong way on I-35. It happened inside the city limits when Jay R. Bonner of Whitney, Texas was southbound in his 2000 GMC pickup in the northbound lanes.
He hit a 1999 Nissan Maxima left front to left front. That car was spun into a tractor-trailer - the car actually run over by the dual wheels of the trailer. The 46-year-old driver, Charles E. Allison, died at the scene.
The truck driver was not injured. Bonner was admitted to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Troopers say alcohol played a role in the accident, although the Pauls Valley man was not wearing a seatbelt.
