Pyote Man Killed in Accident

MONAHANS - A Pyote man is dead after a wreck early Friday morning. Troopers say 44-year-old Jeffrey Blaine Patterson was on his way to Monahans when he rear-ended a truck about seven miles east of town.

Blaine tried to over-correct and ended up in the median on Interstate 20. An ambulance rushed him to a nearby hospital but he was pronounced dead shortly there after.

The other driver and passenger were not badly hurt.
