Corsicana, TX – Victim Critically Injured in Crash On Southbound I-45 that Leaves Two Hospitalized

Corsicana, TX (March 25, 2019) – On Saturday, March 23, police and emergency crews responded to the scene of a crash just after 2:30 p.m. on I-45.

A preliminary investigation of the crash shows that a Dodge Caliber, driven by 35-year-old Michael Givens was traveling south along Highway 45 in the left lane while a gray 2004 Toyota Sequoia, driven by 32-year-old Elias Lopez, was traveling behind it. Givens applied the brakes to slow his vehicle, for unknown reasons, and was struck in the rear-end by the Toyota.

Givens was transported by air ambulance to Parkland Hospital in Dallas with life-threatening injuries. The 6-year-old girl who was in the car with him was transported to Navarro Regional Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Lopez was uninjured.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Michael Givens and the 6-year-old girl as they get the treatment they need for their injuries.
