Female inmate killed when prison van crashes en route to Beaumont

CAMERON, Texas (AP) - One inmate has been killed and several others are among six people hurt in a Central Texas collision between a car and a van hauling prisoners.

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice on Tuesday identified the female inmate who died as 53-year-old Ellaree Mathews. She was serving less than a year for a conviction out of Angelina County in East Texas.

Mathews was pronounced dead at the scene late Monday morning near Cameron.

The Department of Public Safety says the wreck involved a van hauling four female inmates from the Crain Unit in Gatesville to a substance abuse treatment facility in Beaumont.

Officials say one inmate and one transport worker were treated and released. Conditions of the other two injured prisoners and the two drivers weren't immediately available.
