CULBERSON COUNTY, Texas -- A Houston woman was killed in a crash on Interstate 10 near Van Horn, Texas.

The crash was reported at 5:33 p.m. Sunday on I-10 and mile marker 161 outside Van Horn.

A spokeswoman with the Texas Department of Public Safety said Daniel A. Porras, 33, from Houston, was driving a 2002 Ford Ranger pickup in the westbound lanes.Their investigation determined the truck's left rear tire lost pressure, possibly causing Porras to drift into the the center median. Investigators determined Porras overcorrected the pickup back onto the interstate, causing the truck to spin counter-clockwise. The truck eventually rolled over once.

The truck then came to stop facing north.

Troopers said Anatina C. Weidmann, 24, of Houston, was pronounced dead at the scene. Weidmann was a passenger in the pickup truck, according to investigators.

Both Weidmann and Porras were both wearing seat belts.

Porras was transported to a Culberson County hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries.

Citations could be issued pending on the investigation.
