Around 8:45 p.m., Albert Singler, 81, of Lindale was driving into oncoming westbound traffic along I-20 when he hit another vehicle head-on, according to DPS.
On impact, Singler's 2003 Toyota Tacoma caused a 1999 Ford F-250 to overturn, injuring a driver and two passengers. The occupants of the Ford were treated and released at ETMC in Tyler. An 11-month-old baby in the Ford was properly restrained and uninjured in the accident, according to DPS.
