SOUTHWEST MONTGOMERY COUNTY- A Magnolia man died early Friday in a one-vehicle crash on Nichols Sawmill Rd. at Baneberry, four miles south of Magnolia.
DPS officials said 46-year-old Arthur Javier Cuellar was southbound in a 1999 GMC pickup around 2:45 a.m. when he failed to navigate a curve. The truck went off the roadway, the Cuellar over corrected, sending the truck into a side skid across the left side of the road where it rolled on its side and struck a tree.
Cuellar was ejected and the first person to call and report the wreck did not see him, officials said, and told the call taker there was no one in the vehicle.
When MCHD medics arrived, Cuellar was already dead. Pct. 5 Justice of the Peace Matt Masden conducted an inquest and ordered the body taken to the Southeast Texas Forensic Center in Conroe for autopsy.
