One dead, another injured in four-wheeler accident


One woman is dead and another man is injured after they crashed their four-wheeler into a tree Sunday afternoon. Milam County Sheriff's Office says the accident happened around 3 p.m. in the 1000 block of U.S. Highway 190.

Deputies say the driver, Kenneth Coggin, lost control of the four-wheeler and struck a tree. Coggin and 43-year-old passenger, Denise Bentz, were thrown off of the four-wheeler, and Bentz hit her head on the tree.

Bentz suffered severe head trauma, and was found unresponsive when emergency medical personnel arrived on the scene. Coggin sustained minor injuries from the accident. He was treated and released at the scene. 

Justice of the Peace Andy Isaacs pronounced Bentz dead at the scene, and she has been taken by Green Patterson Funeral Home for pending funeral arrangements.
