BOLIVAR PENINSULA — A Gilchrist woman died after being involved in a traffic accident during the weekend, an official said Wednesday.
Helen Vickery, 82, was involved in two-car crash shortly before noon Saturday in the 700 block of state Highway 87 in Gilchrist, said John Florence, a spokesman for the Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Vickery was taken from the Bolivar Peninsula to the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, where she died at 7:27 a.m. Wednesday of blunt-force head trauma, Florence said.
Florence had no details of the crash. A state trooper with the Department of Public Safety investigated the wreck, but the trooper was unavailable for comment Wednesday.
