7 Injured in 2-Vehicle Crash on Highway 103 in Lufkin

Seven Hospitalized After Lufkin Two-Vehicle Crash on Highway 103 near FM 706

Lufkin, Texas (July 25, 2020) – Seven people were injured Friday afternoon in a two-vehicle crash in Lufkin, according to DPS.

The crash occurred around 4:00 p.m., July 24, on Highway 103 west, near FM 706.

DPS said a 2001 Ford F-150 pickup was stopped facing westbound on the highway, waiting for eastbound traffic to pass before turning left into a private drive. A westbound 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV failed to control speed and rear-ended the Ford.

The force of the impact caused the Chevrolet to overturn off the roadway through a ditch and onto a barbed-wire fence.

Seven people were taken to a Lufkin hospital for treatment.

The crash remains under investigation.

We hope the injured victims recover quickly.

Common Causes of Automobile Accidents

While there are many causes of car accidents, the most common reasons of driver negligence include driver inattention; cell phone use; texting and driving; speeding; fatigue; failure to yield the right of way from a stop sign or private drive; running a red light; and driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs,” Attorney Joel A. Gordon said. Mr. Gordon believes that an independent investigation is important. An Attorney will help obtain the crash report, secure accident photos, interview witnesses, and create a claim.
