Houston woman dies in Parker County wreck

A Houston woman died and two other women were hurt Saturday in a single-vehicle wreck on Interstate 20 in eastern Parker County, according to reports.

The woman, Concepcion Duenas, 61, was identified by the Tarrant County medical examiner's office, which handles cases for Parker County.

The wreck was reported around 6 p.m. east of Willow Park in the westbound lanes of the interstate, about three miles west from the where Interstates 20 and 30 split, according to reports.

Duenas was driving a 2008 Toyota Corolla in the outside lane, but it veered off the road, entered a ditch and struck a road sign, according to a report from a Texas Department of Public Safety office in Weatherford.

The vehicle kept going until it entered another ditch along the service road, north of the interstate, and then continued across a culvert. The car dropped another eight feet before it hit the ground and rolled, landing on its roof, the report stated.

Duenas and the two passengers in the car all wore their seat belts, but Duenas died at the scene, the DPS reported.

Two other women in the car were in fair condition Monday at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, a hospital spokeswoman said. Included were Yolanda Moya, 54, of Houston, and Hortenica Garcia Moya, 71, of Navasota, according to the DPS.

The report did not state why the car veered off the road, but the accident was still under investigation Monday.
