A Weatherford man and woman were found dead Wednesday morning after their vehicle was pulled from the Trinity River near Willow Park. 

Rodney Lance Dalton, 51, and his wife, Onis Stewart Dalton, 49, of Weatherford, were pronounced dead at the scene. 

Texas Department of Public Safety troopers were notified at 7:35 a.m. of a single vehicle crash off Crown Road. 

A white 2004 GMC pickup driven by Rodney Dalton was eastbound on Crown Road from Mikus Road when the vehicle, for an as yet undetermined reason, traveled off the road, through the north barrow ditch and into the river bed, according to DPS Trooper Ricky Hunter. 

The pickup overturned and came to rest upside down in the water, Hunter said. 

The crash is believed to have occurred earlier Wednesday, possibly around midnight, according to DPS. 

Onis Dalton was the manager of the Texas Movie Bistro in Lake Worth.
