Lorena rollover wreck sends 1 to hospital

A Cedar Creek woman is lucky to be alive after crawling from the wreckage of her smashed Ford F-250 on a recent morning. Authorities continue to investigate the circumstances of the accident in the northbound lanes of I-35.

The chief of the Lorena Police Department (LPD) reports that the 56-year-old driver slammed into the back of a semitruck that was pulled over on the right shoulder of the road. The truck had its hazard lights on at the time of the rollover collision. The pickup truck flipped over after the initial impact.

The crash happened on Tuesday, May 29, at approximately 6:30 a.m., in the vicinity of mile marker 320 near Lorena. She was towing a golf cart on a utility trailer, the police chief told a local media source.

Although the pickup was totaled in the collision, the woman was able to extricate herself from her crushed vehicle and crawl free of the wreckage. First responders transported her to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center where she was listed in stable condition following the accident.

The police chief speculated that she may have dozed off behind the wheel, because "[t]here were no skid marks" on the highway.

Traffic in the northbound lanes was backed up for a couple of hours after the accident. While the scene was being cleared, troopers with the Texas Department of Public Safety assisted Lorena police with traffic control.

The higher design of pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles (SUV) makes them especially vulnerable to rollover accidents, especially after a high-speed collision.
