Emergency personnel were called at about 4:20 p.m. Thursday to a report of a vehicle that left U.S. 63 north of Twin Bridges and went down an embankment.

Members of the Houston Rural Fire Department rescue squad were called to the crash north of Houston.

Tpr. Cathryn Goodwin said a southbound 2012 Dodge Caravan hydroplaned, crossed the center of the highway, struck a guardrail and went down an embankment.

The Licking Fire Department was sought at about 4:45 p.m. for traffic control.

Shortly after 5 p.m. Sheryl Ford, 63, of Willow Springs, was reported extricated from the wreckage. She was taken by ambulance with moderate injuries to Texas County Memorial Hospital in Houston.

The vehicle had extensive damage. About 20 feet of guardrail was damaged, Goodwin said.
