Bridge Accident on Highway 94 West

A distracted motorist veered into oncoming traffic, sending an SUV spinning into a bridge rail on Highway 94 West. The accident brought heavy traffic in the westbound lane to a halt.

Cars were backed up for more than a mile while rescuers freed the SUV, which was left dangling over the bridge's guardrail.

Trooper Adam Park with Lufkin DPS was the first on the scene and says two females riding in the SUV were taken to Memorial Medical Center in Lufkin. They were suffering from head and back injuries. The three people in the other vehicle were not hurt.
