A early morning crash that occurred ten-miles southwest of Heflin, took the life of an Oxford man. 37-year-old Terry Pate was driving a Dodge Ram pick-up truck earlier this morning on County Road 11 when his truck left the roadway and hit a tree.
Pate was pronounced dead at the scene. Alabama State Troopers are working to determine the exact cause of this accident. TV24 briefly spoke with Pate’s older sister who describes him as loyal and having a heart of gold.
