Timothy Huggins, a 48-year-old Quitman man passed away after crashing his 2003 GMC Sierra in a ditch on
Friday on FM-312 about 2.5 miles south of Winnsboro.

A preliminary crash investigation reveals that Huggins was traveling north on FM-312 at an unsafe speed when he failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway and his vehicle ended up in the east ditch.

His GMC then struck a culvert, causing the vehicle to become airborne and rool over.

Higgins was not restrained in his vehicle and was ejected from it.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and his body now lies in the Beaty Funeral Home in Winnsboro.
