Kassidy moved to Baylor Hospital for rehab... Fundraiser set for Griffith family
A foggy, night on January 19, 2017, Kassidy Griffith, 20, of Teague, was driving north on Highway 80 when she lost control of her car. DPS Trooper Matthew Poole reports that Kassidy lost control of her 2006 Toyota Corolla on a curve and crossed the center stripe. The vehicle exited the roadway on the west side of the highway, went into a skid and struck a tree turning 180 degrees prior to coming to rest facing west.
Kassidy Griffith is the daughter of Aaron and Stacy Griffith, and is a 2015 graduate of Teague High School and a 2016 graduate of Navarro College. She is employed by The Iron Horse Salon in Teague.
Although Kassidy suffered a serious head injury at the time of the accident, according to her mother, she is progressing well. She is responding to stimulus, talking some and is opening her eyes. On Tuesday, January 31, 2017, she was moved, by ambulance, to Baylor Hospital in Dallas for rehabilitation. ?She has a very long road ahead of her,? said Mrs. Griffith.
