Sweetwater, TX (June 29, 2020) – At approximately 2:30 a.m., on June 27, emergency crews responded to the scene of a collision on Texas Highway 70.
Reports from the Texas Department of Public Safety show that 54-year-old Julie Michelle Barela was traveling north on Texas Highway 70 in a 2008 Dodge pickup truck when a head-on collision occurred with a 2005 Dodge pickup truck driven by 25-year-old Jade Ethan Roby.
Both Barela and her passenger, 56-year-old Randy Lee Barela, were killed instantly in the accident. Roby was seriously injured. EMS rushed Roby to Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital for treatment. At this time, DPS is investigating.
Our thoughts are with Jade Ethan Roby at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
We would like to offer our condolences to the families of both Julie Michelle Barela and Randy Lee Barela.
