POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Investigators with DPS are working a Polk County fatality that claimed the life of a Conroe woman after another person in the vehicle at the time of the crash was found injured at his home Thursday morning.

Wendy Renee Banks, 44, died at the scene at 12:27 a.m.

According to the DPS report, the crash happened on FM 2457, about six miles west of Livingston. It appears someone was driving a 1995 Chevy pickup westbound at an unsafe speed when it left the road to the left, struck a culvert and overturned.

DPS spokesman David Hendry said troopers found an address on the scene and went to a home to talk to next-of-kin. They reported that Edward Allen Dobson, 53, of Livingston, was at the home and learned he was also in the vehicle.

Dobson was taken to a Livingston hospital for treatment.

Investigators are trying to determine who drove the vehicle at the time of the crash.
