DPS Troopers Investigate Two Separate Fatalities

DPS troopers in Angelina County were kept busy Sunday afternoon with two separate fatal accidents. The first one took place just after one o'clock at the intersection of FM 2251 and FM 2021.

Officials say 41 year old San Juan Quilimaco of Lufkin died after he ran a stop sign on 2251 and struck another vehicle attempting to make a turn from 2021 onto 2251.

As emergency personnel were responding to that accident, troopers were called out to investigate another fatal accident.

This accident took place on FM 2497 about eight tenths of a mile north of Diboll.

Officials say 37 year old Valente Gonzalez of Austin died when his motorcycle took a wide turn from Burkhalter Hollow onto the northbound lane of FM 2497.

That's when he struck another vehicle.
