Horse-vehicle accident leaves man in critical condition


A horse and vehicle accident sent a man to the hospital in critical condition.

The accident happened about 4: 30 a. m. Tuesday near an intersection at Spence Road and FM 1761.

The driver was taken to a Harlingen hospital by a Willacy County EMS ambulance.

In another accident, a rollover sent seven people to the hospital, including a two- year- old in critical condition.

The accident happened about 10 a. m. Monday after a small sedan went off FM 490 just east of FM 1015 near Lasara.

All seven passengers, including two adult women and four children were transported by a hospital bus the Willacy County EMS has.

The toddler was flown by helicopter.

No one was wearing a seat belt or a child restraining seat.

The accident happened during Monday’s dreary weather conditions.

Law enforcement authorities are advising motorists to buckle up and to have child seats in their vehicles when traveling with little ones.
