2 injured in wreck on US 59 South in Nacogdoches Co.

NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Two people were injured following a rollover accident on US 59 South in Nacogdoches County Friday morning.

Emergency responders had the outside lane blocked while they worked the wreck. However, both lanes were open by 8:50 a.m.

Trooper Brady Stanaland said the driver was traveling at an unsafe speed and went sideways on the road, then overcorrected and went in a ditch and overturned.

The woman passenger was wearing a seatbelt, but not properly, Stanaland said. He said she was ejected from the Ford Mustang. She is being treated for her non-life threatening injuries at a Nacogdoches hospital.

Stanaland said the driver had checked himself into the hospital for minor injuries.
