A one vehicle accident took the life of a Stamford man on New Year’s Day.

Curtis Lynn Wampler, 41, was traveling northwest on SH-6, just southeast of FM 600, in Jones County when, for an unknown reason, the vehicle drove off the roadway to the left.

The vehicle went airborne off an embankment and struck the concrete wall of a bridge, coming to a stop facing northwest in a dry creek bed against the wall.

The crash was discovered by a farmer who was driving by in a tractor several hours after the crash occurred.

According to DPS, it is believed that speed and alcohol were contributing factors, though blood test results are pending.
