Early-morning accident alongside I-10 in Vidor

According to information from Chief Rod Carroll with the Vidor PD, on Oct. 11 at approximately 7:45 AM, the Vidor Police Department received a call of a major accident on the I-10 Service road near FM 1132. A passenger van was traveling eastbound on the I-10 service road near S. Lakeside. A City of Vidor sanitation truck was stopped in the outside lane picking up trash cans. The sun was obstructing the view of the eastbound drivers. The driver of the van saw the trash truck at the last moment and attempted to change lanes striking the sanitation truck in the rear.

Occupants of the van were restrained and a 2-year-old child in the rear seat was in a child safety seat.  The occupants were transported to Christus St. Elizabeth with non-life-threatening injuries.
