Anderson County, TX (1/31/2021) – A Palestine woman was killed Sunday after being involved in a two-vehicle wreck in Anderson County.
The accident occurred around 4:30 p.m. at the intersection of State Highway 19 and U.S. Highway 287. Marie Hardin, 87, was driving a Toyota Corolla south on SH 19 while a Toyota Venza was headed north. For some reason, the Venza failed to yield the right-of-way to the Corolla and turned into the Corolla’s path. The Venza struck the front left of the vehicle.
Hardin was transported to CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital in Tyler, where she was later pronounced dead.
The driver of the Venza was taken to Palestine Regional Hospital for treatment.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
Driving with Negligence
Failing to yield is a violation of Texas roadway laws and a clear indication of negligence. If someone commits an act of negligence, and it results in injury, the victim has a right to file a claim for personal injury. In the car accident above, both personal injury and wrongful death occurred for the occupants of the vehicles.
