Woman Killed in Wreck on Interstate 20

BARSTOW - Dense fog is getting the blame for a crash that killed a Friona woman and put her husband in the hospital.

The wreck happened along Interstate 20 near mile marker 46 just after 9:00 Thursday morning. According to state troopers it started with a minor accident between three tractor trailers.

Before troopers reached the scene a car slammed into one of the big rigs. The passenger in that car, 46-year-old Rebecca Sue Borund, was killed in the crash. Her husband, 50 year-old Jesus Borund, was behind the wheel. He was taken to the hospital in Odessa and is listed in serious condition.

Troopers say the visibility was bad due to heavy fog in the area. The interstate was closed for almost three hours while troopers worked the scene.
