ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin man has died from injuries he sustained in a one-vehicle accident early Sunday.

Jaron Parrish, 19, died Tuesday morning at a Tyler hospital.

According to Trooper Rodney Tucker, Alexandra Porras, 19, of Lufkin, was driving a Hyundai Accent east on FM 1194 around 1:50 a.m. when she drifted into a grassy shoulder, overcorrected to the left, crossed the highway and struck a tree.

Parrish was taken to a Tyler hospital by helicopter, while Porras and the other two passengers, Oscar Roderiguez, 15, and Willie Gilder, 21, both of Lufkin, were taken to a Lufkin hospital.

Tucker said he suspects alcohol was involved in the accident and DPS is waiting on blood test results to come back on Porras.

No criminal charges have been filed in the case.
