KILGORE, Texas (KLTV) - An East Texas woman is in serious condition after a violent crash involving an 18-wheeler.

Buck was taken to an area hospital with severe injuries, including broken bones, and is listed in serious but stable condition,

“It appears she left the roadway some distance back, and that’s what caused her to cross the median. The investigation has not yet determined why she cross the roadway but obviously speed can be an issue when you’re in those curves,” said Kilgore Police Detective Trae Portwood.

No other injuries were reported in the crash, and all lanes of the highway are now re-opened.
