LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Two Lufkin women were taken to the hospital following a two-vehicle wreck on the Lufkin loop Friday afternoon.

Officer Toby Stanaland said Yolanda Garcia, 58, was driving a Dodge Neon northbound on the loop when she came to a stop at the Raguet Street intersection at about 2 p.m. Brittney Deal, 22, of Lufkin, was driving a Mazda behind her and did not stop in time, hitting Garcia's car from behind and pushing it into the intersection.

Garcia and her passenger, Dorthy Donato, 60, were taken to a Lufkin hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries.

Stanaland cited Deal with failure to control speed.
