Diboll Man Loses His Life in Single Vehicle Accident, CORRIGAN, December 1, 2014 - At approximately 8:05 pm on December 1, 2014, a tan 2010 Chevy Silverado, driven by Anthony Dewaine Delco, 57, of Diboll, was south-bound on US-59 about two miles south of the Neches River Bridge. Evidence suggests that Delco's vehicle left the road to the right. Delco overcorrected to the left, crossed over the pavement and entered the center median where his truck rolled and came to rest on its driver's side facing his opposite direction of travel. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Corrigan and Diboll Volunteer Fire Departments, Officer Charlie Murray with the Corrigan Police Department, Corporal Craig Taylor with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Troopers Barett Duren and David Flowers with the Texas Highway Patrol. Delco is believed to have been killed at some point when his vehicle rolled. Firemen used extraction equipment to cut the roof off of Delco's vehicle. Justice of the Peace, Larry Whitworth performed and inquest at the scene. A first-call car from Corrigan Funeral Home transported Delco from the scene. Delco's vehicle was recovered by Clifton Chevrolet out of Corrigan. The accident remains under investigation by Trooper Barett Duren. Special thank you: Ken withKen's Towing
