SUV versus motorcycle crash in Hartley County claims the lives of Wyoming couple


Monday afternoon, a SUV versus motorcycle crash on US 87 in Hartley County claimed the lives of a Wyoming couple.

Texas Department of Public Safety officials said Tom Boone, 60, of Rock Springs, Wyoming, was driving a 2005 BMW motorcycle, towing a motorcycle trailer west on US 87, approximately ten miles west of Hartley. His wife, Rebecca Boone, was a passenger on the motorcycle.

Tiffany Daniel, 44, of Dumas was driving a 2016 GMC Yukon west on US 87 directly in front of Boone. DPS investigators belief Daniel made a U-turn in the path of the motorcycle. As a result, the  Boones collided with Daniel's Yukon.

Tom Boone was pronounced dead at the crash scene. Rebecca Boone was taken to a hospital in Amarillo where she later died.

DPS investigators confirmed that both of the Boones were wearing helmets at the time of the collision. Daniel was wearing a seatbelt and was not injured.

The DPS continues to investigate this incident.
