Shelton Bowles' Ford F-150 sits on Houston Highway after striking a Honda that was attempting to turn into Grace Funeral Home on Saturday. Bowles, 55, of Cuero, was uninjured, but the three Honda passengers were taken to Citizens Medical Center.

A Victoria woman was ejected out the back window of a vehicle that was attempting to turn into Grace Funeral Home about 1:30 p.m. Saturday.

A Honda CR-V driven by Lyndon Allen, 51, of Victoria, was northbound on the highway followed by a Ford F-150 driven by Shelton Bowles, 55, of Cuero.

The Honda was turning right into the funeral home at 2401 Houston Highway when the Ford rear-ended its passenger side, said Victoria police officer Sam Eyre.

A 59-year-old woman in the back seat of the Honda was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the back window after the vehicle apparently spun around, Eyre said.

She and a 49-year-old woman in the back seat were taken by ambulance to Citizens Medical Center. A 57-year-old woman in the front seat went by private vehicle to the hospital, Eyre said.

All injuries appeared non-life-threatening, Eyre said.

Bowles, who said he was on his way to get a new battery for his truck, was uninjured.

"I'm fine, it just shook me up a little bit," he said.

Bowles was wearing a seat belt.

He and witnesses said the Honda did not use a turn signal. Eyre said Bowles failed to control his speed but would not be issued a citation.

Police on Saturday night declined to provide the names of the injured women because they hadn't been able to reach them in the hospital.
