According to information from the Department of Public Safety, Killeen resident David Scott Jones, 23, was driving a 1998 Ford F-150 pickup south on State Highway 80 about four miles south of Nixon at 9:12 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 20.
For unexplained reasons, the pickup veered off the right side of the road.
Police say Jones then over-corrected in an attempt to get back on the highway which then caused the pickup to roll over.
Jones, who was wearing his seat belt, only sustained minor injuries in the crash, but his passenger, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the pickup and died at the scene.
Kristy Kay Reaves, 34, of Killeen was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.
Police say the accident remains under investigation.
