DPS: Speed A Factor In Fatal Accident

A car accident in Rusk County claims the life of a 46-year-old man.

It happened late last night, three miles south of Henderson on FM 840.

DPS officials say Lee Edward Roquemore of Mount Enterprise was killed when his car veered off the road and hit two trees.

Troopers say speed was a factor in the accident. They are waiting for results of a blood test to see if any alcohol was involved.
