Two Navarro County men were killed Thanksgiving Day in separate one-car wrecks, the Department of Public Safety reported.

David Wayne Dowell, 46, of Kerens, and Adam Scott Lewis, 26, of Mildred both died as a result of injuries sustained during holiday crashes.

Dowell died on FM 3096 southeast of Kerens when his 1990 Chevy pickup left the roadway and rolled. Dowell had driven off the roadway, then overcorrected twice trying to right his vehicle, according to a report sent via fax from DPS. The accident occurred about 10:45 a.m., leaving Dowell’s vehicle upside down.

Dowell was wearing his seatbelt. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Vicki Gray, Justice of the Peace.

The accident that claimed Lewis’ life occurred earlier, about 1:35 a.m., DPS reports stated. Lewis was a passenger with Clinton Darrell Ferguson, of Corsicana, who was intoxicated, the reports said. Ferguson was not injured.

It happened on SECR 1090, or the airport slab, in Mildred and conditions were foggy, according to the report. Traveling southbound, the 1991 Nissan pickup left the roadway, came back across and into a heavy area of brush before striking a fence.

Lewis was not wearing a seatbelt, according to the report. He was pronounced dead just after 4 a.m. at Navarro Regional Hospital by Dr. Robert Phillips. An autopsy was ordered.

Trooper Jeff Taylor was the lead investigator on both accidents. He was assisted on both by Trooper Thomas McGinnis and the Navarro County Sheriff’s Office. DPS Sgt. Kenneth Authier, and the Corsicana police and fire departments assisted on the accident in Mildred. The Kerens Fire Department assisted with the accident south of Kerens.
