HERMLEIGH, TX -- A Scurry County teenager was killed Wednesday, August 20, around 8:30 a.m. in a one vehicle accident along County Road 4153 one mile southeast of Hermleigh.

According to DPS, Joshua Gilbert, 13, of Hermleigh was traveling southeast on County Road 4153 when his vehicle went off the roadway to the left.

This caused Gilbert to over-correct to the right, thus causing his vehicle to begin rolling across the highway. 

The vehicle rolled several times before finally coming to a rest in a field upright and facing west. 

The driver was ejected during the rollover and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
