Two Vehicle Accident Sent Woman to Hospital
One woman can count her blessings after walking away with just minor injuries after her vehicle slams into a 18-wheeler, landing underneath it.
According to Victoria police shortly before 2 p.m., the rig was traveling north on Laurent and attempted to make a wide turn onto Odem Street. As the 18-wheeler was trying to turn, a Mercury traveling behind it attempted to go around, but ended up slamming into it. The roof of the Mercury was crushed underneath the big rig, but police said since the female driver was short she was able to walk away without extensive injuries.
Victoria fire officials said the driver of the Mercury was transported to DeTar with only minor injuries. The accident remains under investigation.
