Lufkin woman, 87, cited for failure to control speed in 3-vehicle accident Monday

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

According to the Lufkin Police accident report, 87-year-old Louise Lindsey of Lufkin was cited for failure to control speed after an accident Monday on Hwy 59 South at College in Lufkin.

Sgt. Mike Shurley with LPD said Lindsey was driving a white Kia SUV when she rear-ended John Chaplin, 50, of Spring, who was driving a GMC Sierra pickup, sending Chaplin's vehicle into the Jeep of Mendi Brent, 37, of Lufkin. 

After impact, Lindsey's SUV flipped and landed upside down on the roof.

Emergency responders worked several minutes to free Lindsey from her vehicle. She was then taken to Memorial Hospital for injuries. EMS also said Lindsey had an extremely low blood sugar level.

A witness to the accident told police that he called 911 to report Lindsey as a reckless driver. The witness reported that the Kia SUV was weaving from lane to lane. The witness said he saw Lindsey approaching the traffic, that was backed up due to a red light, at what appeared to be highway speeds and was not slowing down.

No other injuries were reported.
