Quitman woman dies in traffic crash


Troopers responded to a three vehicle fatal crash yesterday (Feb. 5) at 5:17
PM, on SH-37, three miles north of the city of Quitman in Wood County.  The
investigator's preliminary report indicates that the driver of a 2012 Honda
Civic, Angelica Brooke Blalock, 21, of Quitman was traveling north on SH-37
and had slowed to make a left turn onto FM-69 when she was struck from
behind by a 2013 Chevrolet Spark driven by Canyon Ray Davis, 19, of
Winnsboro who was also north bound. The impact caused the Honda to travel
into the southbound lane of traffic where a southbound 2008 Dodge Ram driven
by Grayling Jones, 60, of Mineola, struck it.
Blalock was transported to UT Health - Quitman where Judge Janae Holland
later pronounced her. Blalock was taken to Lowe Funeral Home in Quitman.
Both Davis and Jones show to have sustained non-incapacitating injuries.
The crash remains under investigation.  

The funeral home has posted visitation Friday, Feb. 7 from 6-8 p.m., 1102 E. Goode St, in Quitman. Service will be Saturday at 2 p.m. at Myrtle Springs Baptist Church.
