On Wednesday, July 23rd, Lake Travis teen, Rainey Blaylock, was killed in a Lufkin truck accident.
The accident occurred late on Wednesday night when Blaylock, 18, was driving through Lufkin en route to Nacogdoches. Sadly, while traveling, an 18-wheeler struck Blaylock’s passenger vehicle at an intersection, ejecting her from her car and trapping her beneath the truck.
The Lufkin Daily News mentioned that the 18-wheeler had the right of way at the time of the collision, but also noted that an important sign, warning drivers like Blaylock to yield the right of way to other vehicles, was not properly displayed.
Blaylock, a 2014 graduate of Lake Travis High School and server at The Oasis, was reportedly en route to Stephen F. Austin State University where she was to begin her freshman year of college.
The entire legal team at Williams Kherkher expresses our sincere condolences to those affected by this tragic accident.
