The driver failed to yield to a west-bound Kia Forte. The two vehicles collided. The collision caused the Kia Forte to slide off the pavement and into a chain link fence while the Chevy Suburban came to rest on the shoulder of the west-bound side. Allegiance Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with Deputy Michael McDuffy and Corporal Javier Segura with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and a Trooper from San Jacinto County. Amazingly, nobody was hurt. The driver of the Chevy Suburban is likely facing a citation for failure to yield. Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
