Lufkin, TX (11/26/2019) – A homeless woman was killed while crossing a street at a green light early Tuesday morning around 12:10 a.m. in Lufkin.
The incident happened at the intersection of Frank Avenue at Loop 287 when a woman driving in the inside lane stopped at a green light to allow a homeless woman to cross the intersection. Matthew Battise, 26, was driving in the outside lane, did not see the woman because of the car stopped at the green light, and ultimately hit the homeless woman.
