Auto-pedestrian accident seriously injures two sisters from Fannett

JEFFERSON COUNTY - From Trooper Stephanie Davis/DPS:

At approximately 8:40pm, there was an auto-pedestrian crash on Lawhon Road near Candlelight Road in Jefferson County.  As a result of this crash, two pedestrians were injured.

A 2008 Dodge pickup truck was traveling eastbound on Lawhon.  According to the driver, there was a group of people walking near the edge of the roadway and in the grass, so he moved to the center of the road.  As he moved to the center of the roadway, he did not realize that there were other people walking in the middle of the roadway and he struck two of the pedestrians.

The two pedestrians, 19 and 20 year old sisters from Fannett, were both transported to St. Elizabeth hospital in Beaumont with serious head injuries.  The driver, a 34-year-old man from Beaumont, was not injured.

This is an ongoing crash investigation and information will be released as it becomes available.

Man found dead beneath tractor

JASPER COUNTY - By Steve W. Stewart/KJAS and Rayburn Broadcasting Company

The Jasper County Sheriff’s Department says an Evadale man was found deceased underneath an overturned lawn tractor on Wednesday.

According to Sheriff Mitchel Newman, his deputies responded to a home on Farm to Market Road 105 in Evadale when friends of 54-year-old Kenneth Ray Marlow went to check on him after they didn’t hear from him in a few days, and discovered his body under a large commercial Toro brand mower behind his house.

Newman said it appeared the man had been deceased for about two days, and he was pronounced dead at the scene by Precinct 6 Justice of the Peace Steve Connor, who has ordered an autopsy.

According to Newman, it appeared Marlow had been trying to use the lawn tractor to mow some tall weeds and brush, and at some point the mower flipped over on top of him.
