The victim has been identified as Betty Yeary from Levelland.
The fatal accident occurred at about 7:47 a.m. today at the intersection of TX 114 and FM 168.
According to the article, Yeary was driving a Buick and was trying to make a left turn from the eastbound TX 114 onto FM 168 when she failed to yield to the right of way to a GMC pickup that was westbound on TX 114.
The Buick and the pickup collided, and both vehicles went into a ditch near the service road and the westbound lanes. Reportedly, another vehicle, a Silverado pickup, which was stopped at the stop sign at the north service road was involved in the accident.
