LOG CABIN–An April 13 rollover wreck near Log Cabin in Henderson County sent two people to the hospital, one with serious injuries, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).
At approximately 4:24 p.m., DPS Troopers were called to a one-vehicle crash on FM 3054, about one mile south of FM 2329, just north of the 3054 curve.
Serena Hobbs, who lives near Eustace and who has experience in the medical field, was on her way home from work when she stopped and helped an emergency room nurse, who was also in the area, assist the victims. Hobbs said all windows in the vehicle were broken and that the passengers were wearing seat belts.
The preliminary DPS investigation shows that a white 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer was northbound on FM 3054 when, for an as-of-yet undetermined reason, the driver drove off the roadway to the right causing the Chevy to roll multiple times before coming to rest in the right ditch.
The 18-year-old driver, Emily Dickens of Log Cabin, was transported by air ambulance to UT Health Hospital in Tyler with serious injuries. The passenger, a 14-year-old male, was transported by ambulance to UT Health Hospital in Athens with non-incapacitating injuries.
The investigation is ongoing, according to DPS.
