A woman is in critical condition after she slammed into an 18-wheeler about 6:15 am Friday. The female driver was southbound on FM 3083 between Crighton Road and Jefferson Chemical when the crash happened. According to DPS, an 18-wheeler loaded with rolls of wire was northbound on FM 3083. The driver attempted to turn left into the National Wire Company. The gate was closed causing the driver to stop at the gate leaving his trailer load of wire extender across the southbound lanes and partially into the northbound lanes. Witnesses say there were no lights visible on the side of the trailer. The female who was driving a Nissan Altima drove under the trailer. The beam of the trailer missed her head by inches. Nissan Frontier who was behind her was unable to stop and did not see the truck either slammed into the rear of her Nissan. The female driver was transported to Conroe Regional Trauma Center inn stable condition. In the vehicle with her was a small Chihuahua who escaped from the vehicle. Family members are now looking for that dog.
