A fatal wreck that occurred at 12:01 a.m. this morning on US HWY 82 East in Blossom is still under investigation.
Department of Public Safety Public Information Officer Sgt. Mark Tackett said that two of the three people involved were transported to PRMC for non-life-threatening injuries.
61-year-old Ray Clark Jr., was believed to be traveling westbound when he left his drive lane, veering into the eastbound lane and hitting 69-year-old Pery Murray of Clarksville.
Murray’s passenger, identified as 68-year-old Fernando Ramirez, was pronounced dead on the scene. Tackett advised Ramirez was not wearing a seat belt.
“It is important to remember to buckle up everyone in the vehicle, every trip, every time no matter how far you’re going,” said Tackett.
DPS officials are still investigating the cause of the accident. Tackett advised charges are pending.
