Megan Rene Adkins (20), Olney TX, Died In Crash

A 20-year-old Olney woman was killed in a two-car, high speed crash six miles south of Mason early Saturday morning.

According to Texas DPS, Megan Rene Adkins was southbound on U.S. 87 just after a heavy rain occurred. It was just after 2 a.m. on May 20. Along this stretch of road, U.S. 87 is a four-lane, undivided highway.

Standing water from the heavy rain that had just passed through had formed in all lanes of travel, DPS reported.

Adkins’ 2005 Kia Spectra hydroplaned and entered a right side, broad skid. Out of control, the Kia crossed over into the oncoming lanes of traffic.
