Trooper Gary Rozzell, Texas Department of Public Safety information officer, said Mary Pratt Greene, 68, was traveling north on Highway 281 approximately six miles north of Mineral Wells when her 2012 Toyota Camry left the highway on the west side and struck a brick embankment.
“The brick embankment was part of a culvert for a driveway,” Rozzell said.
He explained that she was transported by helicopter to Weatherford Regional Hospital where Dr. Robert Micaud pronounced her dead.
“We don’t really know why she left the roadway,” Rozzell said.
Troopers Travis Alewine and Phillip McKenzie investigated the accident that occurred at approximately 3:45 p.m. Friday.
