Car Wreck Outside Troup Kills Two

A car collision leaves two women dead; one of them a Troup resident. The wreck was on F-M 15 just outside Troup.

DPS troopers say 79-year old Nettie Lowe Gentry of Troup and Nellie Cheatwood of Purcell, Oklahoma, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The two women were traveling together when a car traveling in the opposite direction veered of the road, overcorrected and hit them.

The driver of that other vehicle is in good condition at East Texas Medical Center.
