Teenager involved in rollover accident

LUFKIN (KTRE) - An accident on Friday afternoon could have ended much worse than it did.

Corporal Wes Ross with the Lufkin Police Department says that a 17-year-old girl flipped her car on the overpass at the intersection of Loop 287 and Frank Street. She was transported to the hospital with a possible broken wrist.

Ross said that witnesses said that the girl appeared to be racing with another car, and added that she was very lucky to have avoided going over the edge of the ramp.

The girl was issued a citation for speeding.
