Tyler Marine Recruiter Killed In Car Crash

An East Texas marine recruiter is killed in a weekend car crash in Cherokee County. 

Early Saturday morning, troopers found 31 year old Staff Sergeant Jeffrey Howard Pattberg ejected from his vehicle on FM 2064 several miles north of 135. Pattberg was pronounced dead at the scene.

Troopers say he was driving on a left hand curve when he headed into a ditch, hitting several trees and flipping his car. They say speed may have been a factor in the accident.

Pattberg was working as a marine recruiter in Tyler.
