Posted: Updated:

One woman was killed in a single-vehicle highway crash late Wednesday night near Tyler.

55-year-old Virginia Wyatt of Tyler was killed in a one-vehicle accident around 11:45 p.m. in the 13000 block of Highway 64 West, according to authorities.

A Dixie volunteer firefighter said the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed, when the driver left the roadway and hit a tree in the parking lot of the 64 RV Park. Wyatt was the only occupant.

Roads in the area were wet at the time, but it's unclear if that was a factor in the crash.

The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating the wreck and said further details would not be available until later Thursday morning.
