A reported beating resulted in a wreck on CR 4323 on the weekend.
A 9-1-1 call to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department at approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug.5 stated that the driver of a white pickup truck was hitting a female passenger that was in the truck. The call was made by the driver of a vehicle that was traveling behind the truck.
Dispatch requested that officers respond to the vehicle which was traveling on CR 4605 at the time of the 9-1-1 call just south of Tenaha. While officers were en route, updates were given to 9-1-1 on the trucks direction of travel, which began to head south on CR 4323. It is unknown at this time if the woman was ejected from the truck, or got out of the truck on CR 4323. According to 9-1-1, the driver then turned the truck around and began traveling toward Tenaha. Apparently on the way toward Tenaha, the truck wrecked.
Texas Department of Public Safety State Trooper Brent Murray later arrived at the scene, .9 miles east of FM 2141 on CR 4323 and determined that the 1999 white Chevrolet pickup truck was traveling westbound on CR 4323 when the driver failed to negotiate a left hand curve, lost control of the vehicle, and came to rest in the ditch. It was determined by Trooper Murray, and Sheriff’s Deputies that the driver fled the scene, and is unknown at this time. The vehicle is registered to a Patricia Castro.
Shelby County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived at the scene of the wreck, and the location where the woman was located. Officers from the Tenaha City Marshal’s Office, and the Timpson Police Department arrived at the scene to provide support.
As of 1 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 6, an official report had not yet been filed at the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department regarding this incident.
