Vidor woman killed in rollover crash near Sweetwater

Fatal crash

NOLAN COUNTY, Texas - A woman from Vidor was killed on a rainy Monday morning after her pickup truck hit a guardrail and flipped on Highway 70 about six miles south of Sweetwater.

According to the Department of Public Safety, 61-year-old Cheryl Gibson Buckley was driving north at about 10 a.m. but took a turn too fast for the wet road. That caused her to skid and strike the guardrail on the east side of the road before flipping over in the middle of the road.

Buckley was dead at the scene, DPS said, and her body was taken to McCoy's Funeral Home in Sweetwater. She was wearing her seatbelt when the crash happened.

The crash is still under investigation.
