Kara Myers, 22, of Glen Rose, died Thursday in a two-vehicle accident on Highway 144, three miles north of Glen Rose.
Myers was traveling north on Hwy 144 in a 2008 Nissan Versa at approximately 6:42 a.m. when Clint Matthews of Waskom crossed the center line in his 2005 Chevrolet pickup and collided with her.
“The driver of the other vehicle (Matthews) was southbound and had fallen asleep and crossed the centerline, colliding with Myers’ vehicle,” Sgt. Chris Frost with the Texas Department of Public Safety said.
Myers was pronounced dead at the scene. Matthews was transported to Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth and was listed in stable condition Thursday.
Myers’ 14-month-old daughter was also in the vehicle with her, but escaped unharmed. She was transported to Glen Rose Medical Center and was later released.
