A 19-year-old Kennard woman was airlifted to ETMC Tyler by PHI Med 11 about 12:55 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 4 following a one vehicle crash on Hwy. 7.
According to Texas Department of Public Safety reports, a 1995 GMC pickup, driven by Krystal Gresham, was eastbound on Hwy. 7 at an unsafe speed when the driver reportedly swerved to avoid striking an Armadillo in the roadway.
The vehicle struck a guardrail on the north side of the road, traveled across Hwy. 7 into the south barrow ditch and struck a tree.
DPS Trooper I Kevin January responded to the scene.
Houston County Sheriff's Office also responded to the call.
