AXTELL, Texas (KWTX) Authorities identified a man who died early Tuesday in one-vehicle crash on a rural road north of Axtell as Rudy Gabaldon, 23 of Crane, which is south of Odessa.
The crash was reported at around 5:25 a.m. Tuesday on Heritage Parkway north of East Denton Road.
Gabaldon was westbound on Heritage Parkway in a 2006 GMC pickup when he evidently failed to negotiate a turn, Department of Public Safety Sgt. D.L. Wilson said.
The truck crashed into a tree line on the west side of the roadway, Wilson said.
Gabaldon died at the scene, he said.
Authorities aren’t yet sure exactly when the accident occurred.
