Man arrested for DWI after collision on Hwy 69


Texas Department of Public Safety as well as fire fighters from Lindale and Mineola responded to a car wreck on Highway 69 near County Road 431 just south of the Sabine River bridge. After officers arrived on the scene, they arrested 29-year-old Sergio Navarez of Mineola for DWI.

According to KMOO-Radio, a red Nissan Altima was in the grassy median facing southbound when the driver quickly pulled out of the median and struck a gray Nissan SUV. The vehicles went across both lanes and off the highway.

Navarez underwent a sobriety test on the scene and officials believe he had narcotics in his system.

There were no serious injuries. Although East Texas Medical Center paramedics responded to the scene, no one was transported.
