GREGG COUNTY, TX - Tuesday morning Deputies and Emergency Medical personnel responded to a residence on FM-2207 North of Gladewater to conduct a death investigation. Sally Coker, 60, of Gladewater was found pinned between a chain and her passenger car at the entrance to her residence.

Coker's Grandchild was inside the car at the time of the incident.

The Deputy happened upon this event while traveling on FM-2207 and called for assistance. "Unfortunately Coker had no signs of life when found," Claxton added.

"Investigators have been examining the scene with Judge Talyna Carlson," Claxton said.

Coker's family has been notified of her death. Carlson has ordered an autopsy on Coker to assist in determining the manner and cause of her death. "It is too soon to comment intelligently on how this incident occurred," Claxton added. As the investigation continues Investigators are hopeful to determine the factors.
