Connie Ballard Injured in Truck Accident in Jasper County, TX

According to initial details, 73-year-old Connie Ballard was in a Ford Mustang traveling along northbound lanes of the highway. While doing so, a "chip-truck" either lost a metal panel or hit it in the road. This sent the panel through the Mustang's windshield, injuring Ballard. The truck continued on and left the scene.

One would think that a driver would notice if they got to their destination and noticed a whole panel missing from their vehicle. Maybe they did simply hit something in the road and just were paying enough attention to see what the consequences were. I certainly would hate to think there's a commercial driver out there intentionally hiding from authorities here.

Hopefully keeping these details in the public eye will lead to someone coming forward with information for the authorities. Perhaps the truck driver themselves will realize the news is talking about them and come forward to cooperate.
