Lufkin, TX: Alleged Car Racing Accident on Access Road Injures Greg Hollis, Richard Lowery


Lufkin, TX — Two men in Lufkin were both injured and another was arrested after their cars were in a wreck along the access road for South 1st Street last Friday morning, April 24, 2015. Police said that Richard Lowery, 20, and Greg Hollis, 39, were both hurt and had to be hospitalized after their Dodge Challenger crashed into a Ford Mustang.

This happened around 10:45 a.m. last Friday morning, police said, near the Hobby Lobby store off 1st Street.

According to them, Richard Lowery and Greg Hollis were in a Dodge Challenger (driven by Lowery) and were at a red light on the access road when the light turned green and they began racing John Allen, 20, who was in the Ford Mustang.

As they raced, Lower’s Dodge lost control and crashed into Allen’s Mustang, causing a major accident that spun Lowery’s car into a nearby pole.

Both Lowery and Hollis were taken to a hospital, where Lowery was said to be in serious condition. Allen was later charged with racing.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
