San Augustine County, TX (January 7, 2022) – An auto accident reported in San Augustine County sent two people to area hospitals with injuries. At around 6 p.m., on January 4, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Texas State Highway 103.
Reports from authorities show that a 2016 Western Star and semi-trailer was backing into a driveway in the area of Texas State Highway 103 and US Highway 96 when the vehicle collided with a 1999 Chevrolet pickup truck.
The driver of the pickup truck, 51-year-old Whitt Smith, sustained serious injuries. Smith was airlifted to a hospital in Shreveport for emergency medical care.
The driver of the big rig, 50-year-old Billy Thomas, was transported to a hospital in San Augustine by ambulance for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Whitt Smith and Billy Thomas at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
