Woman dies in one-vehicle wreck
A Muleshoe woman was found dead Monday morning after officials said she was ejected from her pickup truck on Farm to Market Road 298, 22 miles southwest of Muleshoe.
Kathleen Dann Waggoner, 42, was found on the west side of the road. Officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety speculated she failed to negotiate a turn and rolled the pickup.
Waggoner, a farmer, died at the scene of the accident. Her body was discovered at 8:24 a.m (CST), but officials are not sure when the accident occurred, said Lubbock DPS dispatcher Carlson Trusleer.
DPS determined Waggoner’s Ford F-250 pickup was traveling south on Farm to Market Road 298, then came to the intersection of County Road 91, where 298 turns west. Her truck turned 180 degrees, sliding into an open field on the west side of Farm to Market Road 298, and then rolled, Trusleer said.
