Driver killed in Johnson County crash

The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating a fatality accident that occurred on Tuesday morning on FM 916 outside of Rio Vista.

At around 7:30am Tuesday morning, multiple emergency responders from Johnson County were called to the scene of a two vehicle crash on FM 916 just east of Rio Vista proper.

Traffic investigators believe the driver of a passenger car was traveling east on FM 916 when she veered off the roadway, overcorrected, and veered into the oncoming lane of traffic. A box truck traveling east on FM 916 struck the passenger vehicle head-on.

The driver of the passenger vehicle was transported by CareFlite helicopter to Texas Health Fort Worth Hospital with major injuries, and later died. She has been identified as a 38-year-old female from Cleburne.

The driver of the box truck was not seriously injured.
