LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - One person was injured when a driver lost control in the wet conditions Monday morning and ran into a power pole on an on-ramp to the Lufkin loop.
The wreck occurred on the northbound on-ramp for Loop 287 near Aktinson Drive Monday morning. Officer John Dean with the Lufkin Police Department said the wet conditions caused the driver to lose control on the on-ramp and take out a power pole.
Dean said the driver was taken to CHI St. Luke's Memorial Hospital in Lufkin, but he doesn't believe the person's injuries are serious.
The on-ramp is closed while repairs are being done on the power pole. Currently, emergency personnel are waiting for Texas Department of Transportation workers to close the turnaround.
