Grimes County, TX -- February 9, 2023, Kimberly Roberts was killed and Lonny Dewberry was injured following a two vehicle accident.
According to initial reports, the crash happened at around 3:30 p.m. in the area of FM 39 and FM 1696 outside of North Zulch.
It appears that 37-year-old Kimberly Roberts was in a vehicle traveling southbound on FM 39. 64-year-old Lonny Dewberry was in a northbound Ford F-350. For reasons unconfirmed, the vehicles collided head-on.

Not a lot of people realize just how complex a crash like this can be. It's rarely as simple as just checking cell phone records or seeing who had the right-of-way. How fast were the vehicles going? Did they experience mechanical issues? Was there a medical emergency? Did airbags and seatbelts function properly? Does this sort of thing happen a lot on this stretch of road?
Likely or not, there are all kinds of possible factors that can lead to a deadly head-on collision. A victim's loved ones looking for answers at least deserve to know they're getting the full story. My hope is the authorities put in charge of these events are going to to give the incident the attention it deserves rather than moving on to other priorities, which is something I see families go through far too often.
