Teen drivers crash in Orange County

Two teen drivers involved in a crash in Orange County were being treated at a local hospital after the collision off FM 105 north of Vidor May 24, Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Stephanie Davies reported in a news release. 

According to Davis, DPS received the call reporting the multiple-vehicle accident at about 4:50 p.m. Tuesday. Responding troopers learned that a 1996 Nissan Pathfinder traveling northbound on FM 105 failed to yield right-of-way to a 1994 Ford pickup truck traveling southbound on 105 and attempted to make a left turn in front of the truck. The impact of the collision caused the Ford to veer off the roadway and strike a pole, Davis reported.

The driver of the Nissan, a 15-year-old minor from Vidor, and the driver of the Ford, 17-year-old Karl Bryant, also of Vidor, were transported to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Beaumont for treatment of injuries that do not appear to be life-threatening. 

The crash investigation is ongoing. Davis said no citation have been issued at the time of the release.
