A woman was killed and two were injured in a three-vehicle collision on Highway 46. This terrible accident occurred near the Cholame “Y” around 3:30 in the afternoon. An elderly woman was driving her Mazda when she drifted into the opposing lanes, directly into a semi truck. The driver of the semi-truck tried to avoid the head-on collision and veered to the right, however, the Mazda’s collision caused the vehicle to bounce back into the lanes and crash into a Toyota. According to The Tribune, The semi truck’s trailer, which was hauling about 8,000 gallons of hot oil, became detached during the crash and rolled down an embankment, coming to a stop about 65 feet from the roadway. The elderly woman in the Mazda died on impact and the other two drivers have unknown injuries. The team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers send our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the elderly woman.
