HOCKLEY COUNTY, Texas — One person was killed in a single-vehicle crash in Hockley County early Thursday morning, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
DPS said the crash happened at 1:13 a.m. on Santa Fe County Road, more than three miles northeast of Whiteface.
According to DPS, a Chevrolet C-10 driven by Linda Danielle Garza, 38, of Whiteface, was traveling south when both tires went off the edge of the road.

Her vehicle struck a boulder before it stopped, according to DPS.
The posted speed limit for the roadway was 60 mph. Weather conditions were listed as cloudy. A DPS crash report said the road was dry at the time of the crash.
