Henrietta Milliken, 88, was flown by helicopter Sunday night after the vehicle she was a passenger in collided with a boat trailer that had come loose on State Highway 198, according to a report from Cpl. James Martin of the Department of Public Safety.
Milliken, of Malakoff, was listed in fair condition Tuesday in the intensive care unit of East Texas Medical Center-Tyler.
Sue Milliken Lathrop of Malakoff, 63, was driving the 2005 Dodge Caravan north on SH 198 across the bridge when a truck hauling a pontoon boat in the opposite direction lost contact with its load.
2004 Dodge truck driver Jack Calvin Foster, 56, of Payne Springs, soon learned that his trailer had detached when he glanced into his side mirror and saw it collide with the windshield of the van carrying the two women.
Traffic was stalled in both directions, while emergency personnel worked the scene.
No one else was sent to the hospital.
