STRAWN – The only occupant involved in a wreck on Farm-to-Market Road 2372 Tuesday morning reportedly died at the scene.

Department of Public Safety Trooper Gary Rozzell said the crash happened shortly before 8 a.m. about 1.2 miles west of Strawn.

DPS reports indicate Samantha Elizabeth Smith, 27, of Strawn, was driving westbound on FM 2372 when her 2002 Dodge pickup exited the north side of the roadway, overturned and ejected her.

Rozzell said Smith was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

She was reportedly pronounced dead at the scene by Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Coppy Hodgkins and taken to Edwards Funeral Home.

Rozzell said Smith was employed as a ranch hand in Strawn.
