Woman injured in wreck minutes after fatal accident on U.S. Highway 59

A second wreck occurred on northbound U.S. Highway 59. It appears a vehicle slowed for the accident a quarter-mile up the road and the gold SUV hit the back of the vehicle.

A second wreck happened Friday afternoon near a fatal wreck at U.S. Highway 59 and County Road minutes earlier.

A Nissan Quest with one woman driver struck the back of a tractor-trailer, said Victoria spokeswoman Sgt. Eline Moya. The woman has been transported to an area hospital.

An Advocate reporter and photographer were at the scene covering the fatal wreck when the second wreck happened.

Traffic is backed up for miles as crews work to clear both wrecks.
