Man Faces Charges After High-Speed Accident Sent Vehicle Into Cedar Creek Lake

via MABANK, Texas — A man is facing two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in a crash that sent two victims to Dallas-area hospital by medical helicopter yesterday.

Police say high-speed may be a leading factor in the crash.

Around 4:30 p.m., a white 2015 Dodge Charger and a white Toyota sedan were traveling westbound on U.S. Highway 175, near the western city limits of Mabank, approaching the Cedar Creek Reservoir bridges.

55-year-old Tobin Evans was driving the Dodge Charger at a high rate of speed when he lost control, over corrected, and struck the Toyota Corolla driven by Maria Garcia, of Fort Worth, Texas, Mabank Police Department Chief Keith Bradshaw tells The impact caused both vehicles to lose control and overturn multiple times down the highway embankment.

The Toyota Corolla came to a rest just at the edge of the Cedar Creek Reservoir. Garcia and a juvenile, front-seat passenger were extricated from the vehicle and flown by CareFlite medical helicopter to a Dallas-area hospital.
