A 43-year-old Cuero woman was taken to the hospital after a one-car wreck about 9:40 p.m. Tuesday on U.S. Highway 59 South near Northeast Creek Road.

Lydia Mungia was driving a Ford Mustang south on the highway, when her car entered the median and struck a guardrail. Her car spun facing south, said Trooper David Macaulay, with the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Mungia was taken by ambulance to DeTar Hospital Navarro with unknown injuries.

It's unknown if Mungia was wearing a seat belt, but airbags were deployed, Macaulay said.

The Texas Department of Transportation was on the scene assessing guardrail damage.
