Two people reportedly suffered minor injuries Friday afternoon on U.S. Highway 181 north of the city.

Highway Patrol Trooper Billy Mora said a 1998 Isuzu Hombre pickup driven by 21-year-old John Gray of Beeville collided almost head-on with a 2001 Volvo sedan driven by 57-year-old Charlet Cole Lindley of Portland just before 3 p.m.

Gray was northbound when the southbound Volvo apparently strayed over the center stripe for some reason and the two vehicles collided on their left front fenders.

The impact sent Gray’s pickup onto the shoulder on the west side of the highway where it rolled and came to a stop next to a fence, facing south.

Lindley’s sedan came to rest facing south at the north end of the Normanna Bridge.

Bee County Sheriff’s Office Deputy J.D. Aguirre said both drivers were walking around and seemed to be only slightly injured.

However, Gray did have a minor head injury so he was taken to Christus Spohn Hospital Beeville by personnel from the Angel Care Ambulance Service to be checked out at the emergency room.
