FLORESVILLE -- A mother and daughter from La Vernia are recovering from injuries they suffered in a single-vehicle crash on F.M. 775 northeast of here Oct. 22.

According to Trooper Anthony Flores of the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol, 29-year-old Stephanie Bell was traveling north on F.M. 775 at approximately 7:22 p.m. when the left rear tire of her 2006 Mazda 6 sedan blew out. This, Flores said, caused Bell to lose control of the vehicle and strike a tree on the side of the road.

Bell’s front-seat passenger, her 14-year-old daughter, Rachel, was pinned in the vehicle, Flores said. Ambulance and fire crews from La Vernia and Eagle Creek used the Jaws of Life to free her. Rachel then was flown via AirLife helicopter to University Hospital in San Antonio while Bell was driven there in a personal vehicle. A hospital spokesman said both were treated and since have been released.
