Smith County District Judge Injured In Car Accident

A Smith County judge is injured when her car hit a cow.   The wreck happened last night around 9:40 p.m. on Highway 190 East, just North of Bryan. Officials say Smith County District Judge Cynthia Kent and her clerk suffered minor injuries in the accident.   They were both treated at a nearby hospital and released. Judge Kent was at the Brazos County Courthouse overseeing a Court of Inquiry Hearing. She told us today over the phone she is sore, but feels blessed to be alive. She says she will cancel court on Monday and Tuesday.
