A woman suffered severe head injuries in a four-vehicle accident Friday morning at Farm Road 920 and Texas 199 in the southwest corner of Wise County.
Kay Lackey, 62, of Poolville was driving a van westbound on 199 about 10:40 a.m. when she attempted to turn left onto FM 920. Department of Public Safety Trooper Mitchell Collins said Lackey turned in front of and collided with a Buick Enclave traveling eastbound on 199. The Enclave was driven by Edwina Norris, 41, of North Richland Hills.
After the initial collision, the van spun into an 18-wheeler driven by William Mullally, 57, of Jacksboro, and the Enclave spun into another 18-wheeler driven by Schuyler Long, 25, of Euless. Neither truck driver was injured.
The van came to rest in the median of 199, and Lackey suffered severe head injuries. She was transported via helicopter to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth.
Norris’ Enclave ended up in the triangular median separating 199 and 920. She was taken by ground ambulance to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Azle.
Texas 199 was shut down for half an hour so the helicopter could land.
