According to a press release from DPS Ricky Hunter, Teryia Kendell Sims, 42, of Perrin died from injuries sustained in a one-vehicle crash Thursday morning.

At approximately 9:10 a.m. Texas Department of Public Safety troopers investigated a one vehicle fatality crash in Palo Pinto County on State Highway 16 about half a mile north of Highway 337.  

A 2007 Ford Taurus driven by Sims was traveling north on Highway 16 at a speed that was unsafe for the rainy conditions, the press release read. 

The Taurus hydroplaned and left the roadway hitting a sign before striking a concrete culvert and coming to rest. 

Sims was transported to Palo Pinto General Hospital by ground ambulance. Sims succumbed to her injuries at the hospital and was pronounced deceased at 12:08 p.m.

Because of the death, tonight’s football scrimmage in Archer City was canceled.
