Woman Burned In Fatal Accident

by Chris Cato

An accident Saturday evening killed one and sent another to the hospital with burns on most of her body.

DPS Troopers say a pickup headed north on FM 2558 didn't stop when it went through the intersection at FM 83 in Broaddus. Another vehicle struck the pickup and sent it rolling. When it stopped, it was on fire with two women still inside.

One woman was pulled to safety and taken to the hospital with burns over 80% of her body. It's not clear if she will survive.

Troopers are not releasing names at this time, pending an autopsy to identify the charred remains of the driver of the pickup.

The driver of the other vehicle suffered a broken leg.
