Five people were sent to the hospital this afternoon after an accident on highway 59 south in Lufkin. One of them died.

The crash happened just south of the White House bridge. According to Lufkin police, a Ford pickup towing a trailer made an illegal U-turn and clipped the back of this ford focus. When the driver, Temple Carter the third of Baytown, overcorrected it caused the car to flip several times.

A 5 year old passenger, and 75 year old Bertress Allen of Gladewater were ejected from the car. Allen later died at the hospital. The driver of the truck, Issac Milstid of Houston, wasn't injured. He was cited for making an illegal U-turn.
