ABILENE, Texas -

An Abilene Police spokesperson says 57-year-old Lane Herttenberger  was killed in a single-car accident Thursday afternoon on West Lake Road  near Lake Fort Phantom Hill.

Herttenberger was driving a red 2013 Ford Mustang GT. The Mustang was traveling southbound on West Lake Road when it sped past another southbound vehicle. The Mustang lost control as it passed the other vehicle, spun clockwise, and then slid off of the road, striking a tree and other objects.

Taylor County Justice of the Peace Mike McAuliffe pronounced Herttenberger dead.
