Two women were sent to Austin-area hospitals on Thursday morning following an accident in Buchanan Dam yesterday, Thursday, Aug. 21.

Burnet resident Sheila Straw was flown to Seton Medical Center Williamson and Linda White of Magnolia was transported to the same hospital by ground unit. Neither woman sustained life-threatening injuries, according to reports.

The wreck took place at about 12:15 p.m. in front of Citizen’s Academy on TX 29 two miles east of the RR 1431 intersection. 

Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Trooper Jose Colombo said the accident occurred when Straw pulled her vehicle, a burgundy 2009 Ford Edge, into the roadway in front of a red Ford F250 pickup truck, of which White was a passenger.
