Amarillo teen killed in crash near Panhandle


Saturday evening, Texas DPS troopers responded to a two vehicle crash 10 miles west of Panhandle near the Pantex plant.

According to DPS officials, a 16-year-old female was driving a 2004 Honda Pilot west on the US-60 service road. Glynda Sell, 55, of Amarillo, was driving a 1997 Chevrolet Silverado south on FM-2373.

The 16-year-old driver failed to stop at the intersection of US-60 and FM-2373 and traveled into the path of Sell's pickup. Sell crashed into the side of the Honda Pilot, causing it to roll over. All occupants were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.

A passenger in the Honda Pilot, 16 year old Sarah Tucker, and the driver were both transported by Lifestar to Northwest Texas Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Sell was also transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Tucker was pronounced dead early Sunday morning from the injuries she sustained in the crash.

The DPS continues to investigate this incident.
