Rollover Accident North of Lake Brownwood

A woman was killed in a rollover accident in Brown County, 15 miles north of Brownwood, on Sunday.

The Texas Department of Public Safety have identified the victim as 51-year-old Susan Swindle, of Abilene. She was traveling southbound on Highway 279, three-tenths of a mile south of County Road 106, in a 2002 Ford Excursion at about 2:50 p.m. Sunday when the crash happened.

Preliminary investigation indicated that the likely cause of the accident was a blowout on the vehicle’s left front tire causing it to leave the roadway to the left, through a fence and flip several times.

Swindle was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:00 PM by Judge Bob Wall.  The body was taken to Heartland Funeral Home in Early, TX.

DPS said Swindle was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
