East Texans Killed on Angelina County Highway

by Ramonica R. Jones

An Angelina County woman is dead and two men badly hurt after a head-on collision Sunday night. The wreck happened on Highway 69 just south of Huntington.

Timothy Schroer of Jasper was headed south on 69 when he reportedly crossed the center stripe, crashing head-on into Corey Haley of Lufkin.

Haley is in critical condition. His passenger, 21-year-old, Sarah Haley, died at the scene. Schroer is in stable condition.

Highway troopers also responded to a deadly wreck in Angelina County Monday afternoon. Troopers said a woman in a dump truck was driving too fast when she tried to take a curve.

She was in her mid 50s, but authorities are not releasing the driver's name until her family has been notified. She died at the scene.    

The wreck happened on FM 1270 just off Highway 69 in Zavalla. An autopsy will be performed on the driver.
