An accident in Upshur County left 42 year-old Latonya Champion of Pittsburg dead Saturday, July 15 according to DPS.

Just after 9 p.m., a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by 31 year-old Deshanda Green of Pittsburg was traveling north on US-271 one mile south of Gilmer when Green slammed on the brakes to avoid striking a slower moving vehicle.

A 4-year-old and a 2 year-old were passengers in the vehicle and were treated and released as well as Green.

Champion was also a passenger and was transported to Good Shepherd in Longview where she was pronounced dead by JP James Mathis.
