An early morning trucking accident resulted in the death of the driver and injured the passenger.

Rhett Michael Thiebaud, 38, of Granbury, was driving a Kingsdale milk truck hauler eastbound on Old Granbury Road.

Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Shane Neil said Thiebaud lost control of the rig as he rounded a corner west of Cresson just after 9 a.m. March 12.

The truck rolled off the road and through a fence, separating the cab from the trailer.
