She took evasive action to the right and the car entered a ditch and rolled, coming to rest upside down. Amberson was listed with possible injuries, but declined medical treatment at the scene, according to the trooper. No charges were fi led. A medical condition is believed to have contributed to a truck-trailer accident at 8:38 p.m. Tuesday on U.S. 190 near Greer Road. A 2002 Freightliner truck driven by 54-year-old Steve Frank Coronado of Houston drove off the side of the road and rolled onto its right side in a ditch on the eastbound side of the road, according to trooper Joe Cole. The truck’s trailer also rolled onto its right side, spilling its load. The trooper indicated Coronado was treated at the scene for diabetic shock.
