News reports in East Texas said that Dewayne Hightower was critically injured and suffered the loss of both his legs in White Oak, TX after a car accident on November 14, 2012. Hightower was in between his vehicle and his wife’s vehicle, which were stopped along Highway 80 so he could help his wife put gas in her car.
Scene of the Accident
William Hammock then crashed into Hightower’s wife’s vehicle, pushing it into Hightower, who was still in between the two vehicles. He was flown to a local hospital immediately, but both of his legs required amputation after the accident.
