A 22-year-old Houston woman escaped injury following a Friday afternoon crash just north of Loop 304 on Hwy. 19.
According to reports, a 2001 Chevrolet Malibu, driven by Kerry Wright was southbound on Hwy. 19 when the crash occurred.
Reports indicate Ms. Wright's vehicle was traveling in the left lane and an unidentified vehicle in the right lane pulled in front of the Malibu.
Ms. Wright reportedly took evasive action, which caused her to swerve into the guardrail adjacent to Hurricane Bayou.
The Malibu overturned onto the top of guardrail and slid along the concrete for some distance.
The vehicle came to rest on the roadway. No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.
Texas Department of Public Safety Senior Trooper Bob Reeves, Crockett Fire Department, Houston County Sheriff's Office, and ETMC EMS responded to the call.
