A driver weaving in and out of traffic on State Highway 11E Wednesday night stopped his antics near the Highway 11E/FM 3019 intersection when his vehicle hit another head-on. The accident resulted in a man and wife being flown to an area hospital with fractured bones and other injuries, one vehicle on fire, and the erratic driver being arrested for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
The erratic driver, Nelson Mitchell Privette, 20, of Winnsboro, was also taken to CHRISTUS Mother Francis Winnsboro for treatment. He admitted to the DPS Trooper that he was driving erratically. Currently, he is in Hopkins County Jail awaiting a magistrates hearing.
