Yesterday, at approximately 2:49 PM, Troopers responded to a one vehicle fatal crash on FM-14 in Wood County, 9.5 miles north of the city of Hawkins.   Preliminary crash investigation revealed that the driver of a 1999 Ford F-150, Bobby Ray Turbeville, 77, of Mineola was traveling north on FM-14 when the vehicles right side tires went off the roadway.  The unrestrained driver took evasive action by steering sharply to the left, causing the vehicle to enter a side skid across the roadway and continued into the west ditch where it struck a tree.  Turbeville was pronounced at the scene by Judge Jerry Parker and was taken to Lowe Funeral Home in Quitman.  The crash remains under investigation.
