The eastbound lane of Milam Street – the main thoroughfare through Mexia – was completely blocked Wednesday during afternoon rush hour when a driver rear-ended an SUV in front of him.
Elgin Thomas, 26, of Mexia, was driving a black 2011 Toyota Camry eastbound on Milam Street near its intersection with Brooks Street, just before 5 p.m. Driving eastbound just ahead of him was April Nicole Wilson, 23, also of Mexia.
When Wilson stopped to allow another car to turn in front of her, Thomas crashed into the back of her silver 2014 Dodge Journey SUV, causing major damage to the front of his car.
