Deadly Area Accidents

Two deadly crashes took place in our area Monday night.

In the first, one person died, and another remains in serious condition after a pick-up and SUV collided just outside of White Deer.

DPS says it happened at the intersection of TX 293 and TX 294.

32 Year Old Wilbur Sanders from Louisiana headed south on TX 294 into the intersection, when the SUV moving east on TX 293 didn't yield at the stop sign.

Both collided and 57 year old Susan Barbee of Charlotte, North Carolina, who drove the SUV, died at the scene.

Both had on their seatbelts.

The second accident happened later in the night one mile south of Borger on TX 207.

DPS says 22 year old Christopher Joe Bednorz of Panhandle fell asleep while his pick-up headed north.

He drifted into the southbound lane, and collided with another car.

Bednorz did not have his seat belt on, and died at the scene.

The crash did not injure the other driver.
