It s one of the deadliest stretches of roadway in Guadalupe County: Hwy 123 near Seguin. And, it was the scene of a double-fatal accident Tuesday afternoon when state troopers say a Jeep Cherokee crossed the highway divider and struck an oncoming car.

The crash occurred near the intersection of FM 758 and Highway 123, just a few miles north of the town of Geronimo, Texas.

In the twisted metal that was once a Honda CRV, crews pulled the body of 34-year old Christopher Cooper, who was killed on impact. His wife Kristin, seated next to him, survived. Sgt. Jeff Lyde said the couple was headed to Dallas for a wedding.

And from the crushed Jeep, a bit of a mystery: Emergency crews say the unidentified driver who was ejected from the SUV wasn t wearing a seatbelt. In fact, she was discovered wearing only underwear and a single boot.
