Police considering charges in wreck that killed East Texas woman

BULLARD, TX (KLTV) -

Bullard Police Department have released the name of the woman who was killed in a wreck on December 10.

Jean Mayfield Williams, 62, of Nacogdoches was killed after a garbage truck and a medical van collided on Highway 69 at the intersection of CR 3801.

The driver of the garbage truck is John Lindsay of Bullard. Melissa Wilburn was in the medical transport van, and she is still in good condition. At last check, Mary Edwards of Vidor is in the ICU in serious condition. She was also a passenger in the transport van.

Bullard Police said they are considering charges against the driver of the garbage truck.

Traffic was shut down in both directions for about two hours in Bullard. The gray van used for East Texas Support Service medical transportation was destroyed after authorities say it struck a garbage truck owned by DS Disposal.

DPS, Bullard police and firefighters were called to the scene around noon. First responders had to cut the roof off the van to get the three females out of the vehicle, who were pinned in the vehicle.

A man who lives near the intersection where the wreck happened said he has seen several accidents there over the years. Doug Makowsky lives in Oak Grove Estates, a neighborhood right across the street from where the accident happened.

"You cannot judge the speed of the cars when you try to cross the road right here. You're crossing five lanes at one time and it's just almost impossible," he said.

The crash is still under investigation.

    Tonight, it should be another nice, yet warm evening. Any clouds we see today will clear away around sunset, and the rain chances go back to zero tonight. The temperatures will be fairly warm. They should not cool out of the 70s in most places. Especially near the coastline. North of I-10 has a chance to too the upper 60s, but it will still be warm. This will start off with more hot and humid conditions. There will likely be plenty of clouds every now and then.
