Lee Riely Dean Killed, 1 Injured in Truck Accident in Culberson County, TX
Culberson County, TX — May 22, 2023, Lee Riely Dean was killed and another person was injured following a truck accident late Monday along U.S. Highway 62.
According to initial details said to be from Texas Department of Public Safety investigations, the fatal crash happened roughly 10 miles west of the Guadalupe Mountains National Park.
It appears that 49-year-old Lee Riely Dean was in a truck that was traveling along the westbound lanes of U.S. 62. Due to a series of events currently unclear, Dean's truck and a Volvo tractor-trailer somehow collided. This caused Dean's vehicle to go off-road where it overturned. Dean was ejected from his vehicle, and he ultimately sustained fatal injuries.
Details suggest the semi driver may have been hurt, as well, but there were no details about the severity of the injuries nor whether or not that driver was taken to a hospital. The exact cause of the crash also remains unconfirmed at this time. Investigations are ongoing.
