A deadly crash in Grimes County this weekend claimed the life of an Iola man.
According to Texas DPS, that crash happened on Sunday around 4 am. That is when a 2017 Chevy Silverado tried passing another vehicle on Highway 39, near Iola. Troopers say that the driver lost control, went through a private drive, and eventually crashed into a ditch.
Texas DPS says none of the occupants were wearing seatbelts, and two of them were thrown from the vehicle.
One of the passengers, identified as 25 year old Hayden Martinez of Iola, was killed in the crash.
During their investigations, troopers discovered the driver had been drinking before the crash. Beyond Hayden, DPS says there were two other passengers also in the vehicle.
The other occupants have not been identified, and no further information has been released.
