Wet Roads Blamed For Fatal Crash

The wet weather is being blamed for an early morning accident that killed a Gladewater man.

The accident happened just after midnight Sunday, on Farm-to-Market road 1252 just West of Liberty City.

Department of Public Safety reports show 20 year-old Jose Ramirez was headed westbound on 1252 when he lost control of his car on a left turn. His car slid off the road and hit a tree. Reports show it was raining at the time of the accident and the driver was not wearing his seatbelt.
