A Milano ISD school board member was taken to Scott & White Hospital in Temple after her pickup left Cameron Avenue (US 79) in front of Citizens National Bank downtown Monday afternoon and crashed into a signal light support pole. Lynette Taylor, 46, remained hospitalized as of Tuesday afternoon.
Lt. J. D. Newlin said Taylor’s 2006 Ford pickup was eastbound at 5:20 p.m. when it left the highway, collided with the pole and also knocked down a TxDOT mileage sign.
“We believe she had a medical problem before the accident,” Newlin said. She did not appear to have any crash-related injuries.
Taylor, who is employed at Standard’s Home Health in Rockdale was headed to her home in the Hanover area when the incident occurred.
