A three-vehicle crash that occurred on Hwy. 67 near County Road 184 on Tuesday, resulted in three people being transported to the hospital, including Sabrina Carter, a former Stephenville ISD teacher, who was transported by air to Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth.

“Troopers found that a 2006 Chrysler, driven Sabrina A. Carter, 39, was traveling east on US 67 and due to driver inattention, crossed over the center median and traveled into the westbound lanes,” states a report from DPS Sgt. Dub Gillum.

A Hyundai driven by Karla Blaylock, 25, of Comanche, was struck by Carter’s vehicle on the right passenger side.

A Chevy Cruz traveling behind Blaylock and driven by Juan M. Blaisdell, 22, of Stephenville, was struck head on by Carter.

“Carter suffered severe injuries and was flown by air ambulance to Harris Methodist Hospital,” the report states. “The drivers of the Hyundai and Chevrolet were transported to Harris Hospital in Stephenville for treatment of their injuries. All drivers were wearing their seat belts.”

Carter was formerly a life skills teacher at SISD and headed up the Special Olympics. According to Superintendent Matt Underwood, Carter recently accepted a position to work in Dublin.

The accident is still under investigation.
