Car Hits 18 Wheeler, Driver Flown to Out, CORRIGAN, August 1, 2013 - At around 10:50 am on August 1, 2013, a black 2010 Toyota Corolla driven by Luz Suarez, 66, of Nacogdoches, was north-bound on US-59. Suarez attempted to change lanes near Damascus Road (about 5 miles north of Corrigan), but then allegedly changed her mind, and lost control. Suarez struck the rear tires of an 18 wheeler that was also north-bound (in front of her). The collision caused Suarez to lose control of her vehicle. She left the pavement to the left and rolled her vehicle in the median. Her vehicle came to rest upside down in the grass. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Corrigan Volunteer Fire Department, Officer Javier Segura with the Corrigan Police Department, Deputy Dustin Lowery with the Polk County Sheriff's Office and Troopers Chris Cain and Darwon Evans with the Texas Highway Patrol. Suarez was treated at the scene by EMS Personnel and then transferred to the care of PHi Air Medical as she was flown to Beaumont. The driver of the 18 Wheeler, Marvin Mayfield, 34, also of Nacogdoches, was uninjured. Traffic on both sides of 59 was partially blocked during investigation and cleanup. According to investigating officer, Trooper Cain, Suarez will likely be facing citation(s) in this accident. Suarez's vehicle was recovered by Clifton Chevrolet out of Corrigan where it will be stored. Marvin Mayfield's rig was driven from the scene.
