91-Year-Old May Have Suffered Medical Condition in Silsbee Accident

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 1-Feb-2012

A 91-year-old woman was killed in an accident, when she lost control of her vehicle and smashed into another car in a head-on collision in Silsbee, Texas.

According to police the accident may have stemmed from a medical emergency suffered by the woman, identified as Katherine Barker, a Silsbee resident.

The auto accident took place near Lee Miller Road on Tuesday morning, authorities said.

The other car involved in the Texas collision was driven by Lind Burns, 24, who had to be pulled from her car by firefighters. Officials said emergency crews had to tear apart the metal on the vehicle, using specialized equipment.

Burns was transported to Christus Hospital St. Elizabeth, via air flight. She was recently listed in critical condition as a result of the car accident in Silsbee.

A known history of seizures, diabetic blackouts or other health issues may create a situation where the driver with the condition is liable for injuries endured by other drivers and passengers who have suffered in subsequent car accidents caused by a medical condition.
