Woman Jailed In Longview, Suspected In A Hit And Run

An East Texas woman is jailed in connection with a drunk driving incident in Gregg County early Friday morning. 45 year old Debbie Sherrod of Hallsville has been arrested, accused of what would be her third DWI offense.   Police say this one, ended in a crash on Highway 149. They believe she ran an 18-wheeler off the road, then drove away from the scene.

The driver of the 18 wheeler driver was trapped in his vehicle for several hours before being found and taken to the hospital. He's in stable condition. Sherrod now faces charges of "intoxication assault with a vehicle" and "failure to stop and render aid".
