A Eustace woman died after a two-vehicle wreck Saturday afternoon at the intersection of State Highway 19 and Farm-to-Market Road 2752 in Henderson County south of Athens.

Bryan Denman, 57, of Canton, was driving a 2010 Dodge Dakota southbound on SH 19 and went into the left-turn lane to FM 2752. Denman didn't yield right of way when turning left and was hit by a northbound 2017 Ford Fiesta driven by James Donovan Trahan, 17, of Eustace, according to preliminary Texas Department of Public Safety reports.

Lillian Lucile Gayton, 62, a passenger in the Fiesta, was sent to UT Health-Athens, but was pronounced dead later. Another passenger, an 8-year-old boy, was taken to Children’s Medical Center–Dallas. Trahan and Denman were both sent to UT Health-Athens in stable condition. The crash remains under investigation, according to the DPS.
