LAMAR COUNTY, TX-- Authorities say the truck driver who ran off the road in Lamar County Thursday, suffered a heart attack and is currently in the ICU.
Trooper Sylvia Jennings says 59 year old Lary Dowell, of Eustace, was heading southbound on SH 19/24 when he suffered a heart attack.
She says he then crossed into the northbound lane, left the roadway, struck a utility pole and drove through a corn field before coming to a stop.
The accident caused traffic to be shut down for a short time due to a power line laying across the highway.
