Driver, passengers escape after pickup bursts into flames following collision

JASPER COUNTY- By Mike Lout/KJAS & Rayburn Broadcasting


Four people underwent treatment following a fiery two-vehicle auto accident that occurred on Friday evening, just south of Jasper.


Firemen, police and other emergency crews were dispatched to the scene of the accident, about two miles south of Jasper near the intersection of Old Highway 8, at Bradshaw Hill, shortly after 7:00, when it was reported that two vehicles had collided.


Officers said the crash occurred when a 2010 Nissan pick up truck, which was headed north, for some unknown reason, crossed the center line, colliding almost head on with a southbound Chevrolet pick up truck.


Shortly after the crash occurred, the Chevrolet burst into flames and was completely destroyed. However, the driver of the truck, Jim Holloway and his two passengers, Tim Elias and Mary Hughes, all of Kirbyville, were able to get out without serious injury.


The driver of the Nissan, Justin Bridges, of Longview was trapped and had to be rescued from the vehicle by the volunteers of the Jasper Fire Department, who used hydraulic tools to open the truck.


Bridges, along with Holloway, Elias and Hughes were all taken by Acadian EMS to Christus Jasper Memorial Hospital, where they were at last word still undergoing treatment.


The section of Highway 96 surrounding the wreck was closed for some time and traffic was detoured by way of Old Highway 8 until the wreckage could be removed from the roadway.
