The National Weather Service hosted a weather spotting training course in Lufkin on Saturday for people to learn more about severe weather and ways to keep their community safe during severe weather-related situations.
Slowing down and moving over when driving by first responders is not just for safety-- it's a law in Texas. Thursday, a Lufkin police officer responded to a crash at the intersection of 59 South and Southwood Drive. While there, his patrol unit and a tow truck were struck by a distracted driving.
