Around 12:45 p.m., DPS received a report of a two vehicle crash on FM 92 in Tyler County. The crash occurred near CR 4925 in Fred, Texas.

Preliminary reports indicate that a Honda passenger van was traveling northbound on FM 92. A Ford Explorer was also traveling northbound on FM 92 behind the Honda.

As the driver of the Honda began to make the u-turn, the vehicle was struck in the driver-side door by the Ford.

The driver of the Honda, 30-year-old Renee Cameron of Colmesneil, was flown by medical helicopter to St. Elizabeth hospital with serious injuries. Her 8-month-old daughter was transported by ambulance to St. Elizabeth's hospital. The child was secured in a car seat and did not appear to have any visible injuries, but was transported to the hospital for observation.

According to Davis, Renee Cameron is still hospitalized at St. Elizabeth's hospital with serious injuries. Cameron's 8-month-old daughter who was transported to the hospital for observation has since been released from the hospital. All of the children in the Ford Explorer received minor injuries and have since been released from area hospitals.
