We’re waiting for full details from the Texas Department of Public Safety, but we do know that one person was flown by medical helicopter from an accident scene in northern Tyler County on Saturday. The two-vehicle crash happened during the noon hour on U.S. Highway 69 at Recreational Road 255 just north of Colmesneil.

Both the Colmesneil and Woodville Fire Departments responded and used the Jaws-of-Life to free one person from a vehicle.

The intersection was reopened about 90 minutes after the accident occurred.

More information has been requested from DPS Sergeant Richard Standifer and we’ll update this story when it becomes available.
