Angel Care Ambulance Service owner Gabriel Aleman, kneeling at left in the black shirt, assists members of the Beeville Volunteer Fire Department in getting Adela Nolf out of an overturned Nissan van Wednesday evening at the intersection of U.S. Highway 181 Business and FM 351. The van collided with a white Volkswagen Jetta just after 4 p.m. Although Highway Patrol troopers had not yet completed the accident report by Thursday evening, it appeared that the van was westbound on FM 351 when it was struck by the northbound Jetta, driven by 16-year-old Whitley Riggs. The van turned over onto its left side, pinning the driver inside. Firefighters cut out the van's windshield first, then cut the top on one side to get to the woman. Both drivers were placed in ambulances, and Nolf was taken to Christus Spohn Hospital Beeville for treatment of her injuries.
