12-Year-Old Girl Killed In Donley County Crash

A juvenile girl is dead after she was involved in a two-vehicle crash Saturday evening in Donley County.

According to the Department of Public Safety, this crash happened around 6:00 p.m. when 43-year-old Katherine Monroe of Hedley was headed eastbound in a 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier on US-287.

DPS said she was about one mile west of Hedley and 34-year-old Erika Roberts of Amarillo was driving a 2016 Jeep Renegade directly behind Monroe.

That's when Monroe slowed down to turn left at the crossover, Roberts failed to control her speed and she crashed into the back of the Cavalier, according to DPS.

The back seat passenger of the Cavalier, 12-year-old Allison Monroe of Hedley, was killed in the crash and was pronounced dead on scene by Donley County Justice of the Peace Pam Mason.
