A Center man and woman died in a one vehicle crash Tuesday morning on state Highway 87.

Jouwana Q. Standley, 34, was pronounced dead at the scene by Shelby County Justice of the Peace Maxie Eaves, according to Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper David Hendry. Her passenger, Martin Baxter Patton, 42, died at Shelby Regional Medical Center.

Standley was reportedly southbound around 5 a.m. on state Highway 87 in a 1999 Crown Victoria when she left the road and struck a tree 1.2 miles from County Road 2050, Hendry said.

The accident is under investigation by DPS.

Information on funeral arrangements was not immediately available Tuesday.
