First responders work wrecks in wet weather


Emergency personnel have spent Wednesday afternoon working wrecks in the wet weather.

Both southbound lanes on US 59 north of Lufkin were blocked following a wreck. As of 4:50 p.m., southbound traffic was diverted to the shoulder.

Trooper Chad Wilson said an 18-wheeler cut off a Chevy Tahoe, driven by a 18-year-old Nacogdoches man. The Tahoe driver hit the median and bounced back onto the freeway. Nobody was injured.

In Lufkin, a man driving a Ford pickup hydroplaned off the loop between Lufkin Avenue and US 69. He left the road and drove into a tree line, but was not hurt, according to Lufkin police officers on the scene.
