2 Corrigan Girls Life Flighted in Major Accident, CORRIGAN, September 19, 2008 - 3 young people were seriously injured in a major single vehicle accident on FM-352 in Corrigan. The accident occurred shortly before midnight when a maroon 2007 Scion Tc driven by Melanie McKinney, 18, of Corrigan was west-bound on 352 and entered a curve on the road too fast. The vehicle went off the road to the left, into the grass and continued until it hit a driveway embankment and went airborne. The vehicle landed and rolled over one and a half times and came to rest on its side in the grass. The Corrigan Volunteer Fire Department was summoned to use the jaws of life to cut McKinney and passenger Morgan Bynum, also of Corrigan, from the vehicle. A third passenger, Michael Clamon, 23 of Zavalla, managed to crawl from the wreckage and was found in the grass at the scene. Two Americare Ambulances were dispatched to the scene and one Ambulance from Lone Star EMS. Nine DPS Troopers were at the scene including Livingston's Brent Murray. Also at the scene was Polk County Sheriff's Deputies Darrin Crow, Sergeant William Jerry and D.A. Investigator, Mark Jones. FM-352 was blocked while the accident was being investigated and cleared. Two of the passengers, McKinney and Bynum were life flighted from the scene, one to Memorial Lufkin and one to Hermann Hospital in Houston, while Clamon was transported by ambulance to Lufkin. A heavy smell of alcohol came from the vehicle at the scene of the accident. McKinney did have insurance. A citation will likely be issued to McKinney for unsafe speed. A rollback wrecker from Riley Towing & Recovery recovered McKinney's vehicle from the scene. The road was opened back up shortly after 1:30 am and traffic fully flowing.
