Sulphur Springs woman killed in Wyoming crash Friday
From Staff Reports

July 24, 2006 - FARSON, Wyo. (AP) — A Texas woman was cited for failing to stop at a stop sign, causing a crash that killed the passenger in her car Friday.

Donna S. Spencer, 54, of Mexia, Texas, was ticketed after the death of Angela Gay Beyer, 55, of Sulphur Springs, Texas, at the scene of Friday’s crash.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol said Spencer and Beyer were westbound on Wyoming 28 when Spencer ran the stop sign at the intersection with U.S. 191 in Farson. Northbound and southbound traffic on 191 does not stop at the intersection.

Mike L. Schall, 43, of Eden was traveling south on U.S. 191 in a Ford F350 welding pickup truck. Schall's pickup broadsided Spencer’s Toyota Camry as she ran the stop sign. The impact of the crash sent both vehicles into the southwest side of the interection, according to WHP Lt. Marty Noonan.

All three were wearing seat belts, and both front air bags did deploy in Spencer’s car, officials said. Beyer was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:44 p.m. Friday, July 21, Noonan said Tuesday.

Both Spencer and Schall were transported to a Wyoming hospital, where they were treated for non life-threatening injuries, then later released. 

Schall was cited for not having a valid registration, and Spencer for running the stop sign.

Beyer is a native of Limestone County, but resided in Sulphur Springs with her husband, Ron Beyer. She has three children, Terry Beyer of Dallas and Brandon Beyer and Tara Jones of Sulphur Springs. Her grandchildren and great-grandson, Brandi Beyer, Dakota Jones and Colby Allbriton, also all reside in Sulphur Springs.

Funeral services for Angela Beyer are slated for 2 p.m. Wednesday at Porter Funeral Home Chapel in Mexia, with burial to follow in Shiloh Cemetery in Limestone County. Visitation will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. tonight at the Mexia funeral home.

Donations in Beyer's memory can be made to The Humane Society or to Cross Country Cowboy Church in Sulphur Springs.
