A woman was taken into custody for suspicion of drunk driving after three people were injured in a head on collision, Thursday evening in Texas City, officials said.
The woman’s Ford Expedition slammed into a Chevy Aveo, occupied by a man and woman, causing serious them injury. Both the man and woman were transported to the University of Texas Medical Branch’s John Sealy Hospital by air ambulance.
A third passenger in the compact car, which had Louisiana license plates, was also injured, sending them to the hospital via ground ambulance.
All three of the occupants in the Chevy were trapped inside the car when the collision caused it to rollover. Hydraulic rescue equipment was used by the Texas Fire Department to free the three people trapped in the Chevy.
The driver of the Expedition was not injured in the car accident, but was taken into custody by police after enduring a mandatory blood test. Officials expect that she will face charges of driving while intoxicated.
The identities of the occupants in the Chevy have not yet been released.
A length of Texas Avenue was closed during further investigation of the Texas auto accident.
