Fatal Accident

by Chris Cato

An East Texas woman is dead after a fatal accident just south of San Augustine.

DPS officials say 31-year-old Tammy Adkins was headed north on FM 3279 around 11:15 Saturday night.

They say she was driving at a high rate of speed when she lost control. Officials say Adkins' truck slid sideways off the road and into a ditch, sending the vehicle rolling before eventually hitting a tree.

Officers say she was not wearing her seatbelt.
