OLDEN, Texas -

A teenager from Eastland was killed early Friday morning after a rollover accident.

It happened just before 2 a.m. Benjamin Levi Cagle was driving north on County Road 454, near Olden.

As he approached a curve, he over-corrected and his truck hit a ditch and rolled over. The passenger, 17-year-old Joseph Wayne Woodall, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.  

He was taken to Arringten-Edwards Funeral Home in Eastland.

The Texas Department of Public Safety is reminding drivers to buckle up.

Thursday night, a 71-year-old woman was killed in a rollover crash near Moran.

That makes this the second accident within 24 hours where those killed were not wearing seatbelts.
