Vidor Police are investigating a fatal accident on Highway 12 at 1132 in Vidor.

Betty Ingle Carter, 71, of Orange County, was pronounced dead at the scene of the wreck according to a news release from the Vidor Police Department.

Another person was seriously injured and was taken to CHRISTUS Southeast Texas St. Elizabeth but is said to be in stable condition.

Several people who witnessed the deadly crashed said the non-operational stop light going north bound on the highway may have caused the accident.

Two vehicles were involved in the accident. One of the vehicles was pulling a trailer.

Linda Mcdowell said she drives by this intersection often. She believes sometimes non-operational stop light going north bound on Highway 12, makes the intersection a horrible spot for accidents.

“They need to do something about the light before someone else gets hurt,” said Mcdowell.

The Vidor police department was notified about the broken light and let TXDOT know.

We were told they sent a crew out to make repairs.
