TWO DEAD AFTER SERVICE ROAD WRECK
Two men died Saturday morning in a wreck on the eastbound Highway 80 service road in Kaufman County. The two male victims were traveling on the service road when the driver sped around another vehicle in a no passing zone and lost control. The driver then overcorrected causing the pickup to overturn into trees on the right side of the road, said witnesses. Sunnyvale firefighters worked for over an hour to extricate the men from the wreckage. Both men died on the scene. Drinking, speed and unsafe passing are the likely factors that led to the crash, police said.
