Local attorney air-lifted to hospital following Vidor accident


A local attorney was taken to the hospital by air ambulance following an accident Monday afternoon.

According to Vidor Police Chief Dave Shows, attorney Karla Rogers was driving a Ford Pickup northbound in the 600 block of North Main. Rogers veered off of the roadway to the right. She overcorrected to get back on the pavement. She was able to get the truck back on the roadway for a short distance, but the truck left the pavement a second time and rolled over at least one time before stopping in a ditch.

Rogers was taken by air rescued to Christus Hospital St. Elizabeth in Beaumont with obvious head injuries.

No one else was injured.

The accident remains under investigation.
