A 62-year-old Edna woman was taken to a hospital Thursday afternoon after her vehicle collided with another vehicle on U.S. Highway 59 North at Farm-to-Market Road 1686.
Dorothy Barnes was traveling on the business route of the highway when a red Ford Focus failed to yield the right of way in an attempt to cross the highway on Farm-to-Market Road 1686, and the two vehicles crashed, said Trooper Vern Sterry of the Department of Public Safety.

Barnes was being evaluated Thursday evening in the emergency room, and a condition wasn't available, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
