SUTHERLAND SPRINGS -- A 63-year-old La Vernia woman has died from injuries sustained in a Feb. 1 crash on U.S. 87 just north of F.M. 539 here, officials said.
Johnnie Henry was pronounced dead in Connally Memorial Medical Center at 5:15 a.m. Feb. 2, said Troop-er Al Alejos of the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol. She was one of six passengers in a 1984 Chevrolet Suburban driven by 50-year-old Mark Higdon, also of La Vernia. Alejos said Higdon was making a left turn from southbound U.S. 87 into the driveway of a business when a 2005 Ford Excursion traveling northbound on U.S. 87 struck the vehicle. Neither Higdon nor the driver of the Excursion -- 38-year-old James Croft of Waco -- was injured.
Higdon’s remaining passengers were transported to area hospitals.
