Posted: Updated:

DENISON, Texas -- A Denison man died Thursday morning after his mother crashed a vehicle into a utility pole in the 1800 block of South Armstrong Avenue.

Police said the 69-year-old driver, Norkatha McKinney of Denison, told investigators she fell asleep at the wheel.

McKinney's son, Wesley Toll Daniels Jr., 40, was a passenger in the vehicle. He died later at an area hospital.

Police said McKinney, who is also a Denison resident, was taken to a hospital for treatment of what appeared to be minor injuries.

Police spokesman Lt. Mike Eppler said no charges are currently anticipated against the driver.
