Harleton Couple Killed In Auto Accident

The community of Harleton is coming together to help bury an East Texas couple killed in a car crash.  The one-vehicle crash happened Thursday on Davidson road, two miles west of FM 450.

Investigators say Paul Derrick, 46, and his wife, Lena Mae, 45, were killed. Churches and members of the community have banded together to raise money for funeral expenses. The Derricks had no life insurance and did not earn much money. The couple leaves behind two children.

Those who knew the couple say the Derricks were good- hearted neighbors who always helped in their community.  Lena Mae Derrick was a longtime, well-known substitute teacher at Harleton ISD. Anyone wishing to help can call First National Bank of Harleton.
