Victim of Head-On Collision Star Flighted

Last Saturday morning at approximately 3:50 a.m., Alicia (Allie) Snawr, 38 years of age, from Blue, was traveling northbound on Highway 77 just south of the Lexington City Limits. It appeared that she was turning onto Loop 123 at the outskirts of the City. It was reported that at the same time, a large FedEx semi truck pulling twin trailers was traveling southbound on Highway 77 near the intersection of Loop 123. The vehicles had a head-on collision and Snawr was pinned in the 1997 GMC pickup truck that she was driving.

Officer Fred Kelly with the Lexington Police Department was reportedly first on the scene and rendered first aid until Lexington EMS and B & M Ambulance from Giddings arrived. Lexington Volunteer Fire Department used the Jaws of Life to help extract Snawr from the vehicle. Assisting at the scene of the accident were Lexington Police Chief Randy Davenport, Trooper Ordie Manner with Texas Department of Public Safety and Deputies Aderhold and Liles from the Lee County Sheriff’s Department.

Snawr was taken by Star Flight to Brackenridge Hospital in Austin where she was treated for serious injuries.

Brent Snawr, the husband of the injured, said, “She (Allie) was coming home from work from the Circle C in Giddings and had stopped at Whataburger to eat before coming home.”

According to her husband, she has been released from the hospital and is at home with around-the-clock nursing care. Brent said, “I appreciate the excellent care and professionalism of the Lexington Police Department, EMS, VFD and everyone involved in helping my wife at the accident.”

An official report from DPS will not be available until later this week.
