Anthony DeClue was killed early Thursday as he likely fell asleep at the wheel, lost control and rolled his Jeep on Highway 87, 50 miles northwest of Amarillo, Texas.
Anthony was headed north on Texas Route 87 in his 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee, heading home to Oregon when he began to fall asleep and drifted into the center median, Texas Troopers said.
Authorities think Anthony snapped awake and steered back onto the highway but overcorrected, causing the Jeep to go into a slide and skid back to the median where it rolled several times. He was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Anthony’s family is devastated. Family and Friends are reaching out to the community to help his family raise the funds to transport Anthony’s body home to Lincoln County where memorial services and his body can be properly handled.
