Dec. 17, 2004 -- A 27-year-old Sulphur Springs woman is in critical condition in a Dallas hospital after sustaining severe head and neck injuries in a one-vehicle accident on County Road 3236 Thursday.
Amee Adams was found lying in a field off of CR 3236 at 6:37 p.m. by an off-duty Paris fireman who lives near the accident scene.
"A Paris fireman drove by and noticed a car in the pasture. He got out to look, and found her," Hopkins County Sheriff's Cpl. Jimmy White said Friday morning. "She had been ejected [from the wrecked vehicle]."
The woman had reportedly just left a family member's house and was traveling south on CR 3236 on her way home when the accident occurred.
The right tire on her 2004 Pontiac Grand Am exited the roadway to the right. Adams apparently over-corrected as she turned the wheel to the left, causing the vehicle to skid sideways across both lanes into the ditch. At that point the vehicle began to roll over from side to side, ejecting Adams from the car before coming to a rest in the pasture, according to DPS reports.
Upon finding the woman, the Paris fireman advised local emergency officials to send help as the woman had sustained what appeared to be massive head trauma. North Hopkins and Hopkins County firefighters responded to the accident, along with Hopkins County Emergency Medical Services personnel, at 6:38 p.m. Tira volunteer fire department also responded. Firefighters worked alongside ambulance personnel to stabilize the woman until a medical helicopter arrived at about 7:20 p.m. to fly her to Parkland Memorial Hospital.
Adams was listed in critical condition at Parkland Friday
