KEMP–A Kemp woman sustained critical injuries in a single-vehicle accident shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday morning.
Kemp Police Chief Jimmy Council reported that Peggy Wright Kines, 79, was traveling south on State Highway 274 by the high school in a 1996 Mazda pickup truck when she veered slightly off the road. “She overcorrected to get back on the road,” Council said.
The truck then rolled nine times over a 415-foot distance, he said.
Council said speed was a contributing factor, along with some distraction.
“She sustained critical injuries, including head and face trauma as well as a punctured lung,” Council reported.
She was transported by ETMC ambulance to Baylor Hospital in Dallas, where she remains sedated.
The Monitor learned that Peggy Wright Kines is the mother of the Tool animal shelter director, Krista McAnally.
She was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. First Responders were on the scene two minutes after it was called in.
