Accident Sends 3 To Hospital

An accident Saturday evening sent three people to the hospital after their car went down a boatramp rolling several times.

The accident happened near the Angelina-Nacogdoches County line on Highway 103. DPS officials on the scene say it appears the car went off the road and onto the boatramp near the Lake Sam Rayburn bridge at a high rate of speed.

The car was headed for the water but hit the embankment of the bridge and rolled several times. The three in the vehicle were taken to Lufkin's Memorial Hospital. DPS officials say alcohol may have been a factor in the accident.
