A Hereford woman died Friday afternoon, Feb. 8, in a two-vehicle accident on U.S. 60 about 4 miles west of Hereford, according to a report released Monday by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Laura Hernandez-Cervantes, 34, of Hereford died at the scene, according to the DPS news release. A 10-year-old female passenger in the vehicle was not injured, according to the DPS.

According to the DPS release:

  • About 4 p.m. Friday, Hernandez-Cervantes was driving a 2006 Ford pickup westbound in the outside lane of U.S. 60. She and her 10-year-old passenger were wearing seat belts.
  • A 2017 Freightliner tractor-trailer rig, driven by Cary Shoults, 56, of Sulphur Springs was westbound in the inside lane of U.S. 60. Shoults also was wearing a seat belt.
  • Shoults was not injured.
  • The preliminary investigation indicates Hernandez-Cervantes attempted to turn left from the outside lane into the center median crossover, and crossed the path of the Freightliner.
  • The truck collided with the driver side of the Ford pickup.
  • The road conditions were clear and dry, with a speed limit of 75 mph.

The crash remains under investigation, and information may change, be corrected, or added based on the investigators findings, the DPS said.
