BUCHANAN DAM — A Leander woman has died after a one-car rollover June 25 on a remote roadway near Lake Buchanan in Llano County, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The single-vehicle wreck happened just after midnight on Ranch Road 261, a rural roadway that stretches north of Texas 29 along Lake Buchanan to Bluffton.

The report states that 31-year-old Deserae Beth Becknell was driving a 2004 BMW 325 when the vehicle left the roadway.

She was traveling north, failed to negotiate a curve to the right and “traveled straight off the roadway, jumping into an intersecting roadway and began to roll,” according to the report.

Becknell was pronounced dead at 12:39 a.m. at the scene by Llano County Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace Linda Ballard.

Information about the cause of the crash is pending.
