One person remains in critical condition after a major crash in Vidor on Sunday night.

Police Chief Rod Carroll said Monday in a news release the patient was out of surgery but is still in critical condition, while another is in serious condition and four others had injuries which were not life-threatening.

Only the critical patient remains in the hospital.

The Vidor Police Department received a call at 8:12 p.m. about a major accident at the intersection of Highway 12 and Evangeline involving a head-on collision.

The caller told the dispatcher one vehicle had left the roadway and rolled several times.

Six people were involved "with obvious severe injuries," Carroll's statement says. Some of them were trapped inside.

Acadian Ambulance Service took all of them to Christus-St. Elizabeth hospital in Beaumont.

While the investigation is ongoing, Carroll says it appears one vehicle was headed east on Highway 12 when it attempted to make a left turn onto Evangeline. Another vehicle was headed west on Highway 12 when the collision occurred.
