Wreck: A Liberty woman, 75-year-old Glenda Wiggins, was airlifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston following a wreck yesterday morning. City of Liberty Police Officer Jennifer Boles said a passing train prompted the traffic signal at the intersection of U.S. 90 and FM 563 to begin flashing. At that point, according to police, Mrs. Wiggins attempted to turn, from the westbound land of Highway 90, onto FM 563, reportedly turning into the path of an eastbound pickup truck driven by David Strahan of Batson. Mrs. Wiggins is believed to have leg and rib injuries but was in stable condition. The accident remains under investigation and no citations have been issued pending the outcome of the police investigation.
