Woman Hurt In Lunchtime Wreck On The Loop

by Ramonica R. Jones

Lunch time traffic on the loop in Lufkin was delayed Friday afternoon after a wreck in front of Barnhill's restaurant.

The accident blocked traffic after a driver rear-ended a Ford Escape.  Witnesses say the woman in the Escape slowed down so a car in front of her could make a turn.  The other driver then crashed into the SUV.

Frances Cleveland, a witness, said, "she exited the ramp and she looked away for just a minute, and when she did, she hit the side of [the] truck and went sideways."

The driver of the blue Escape went to the hospital with injuries.  Her young son was in the backseat.  He was not hurt.
