A wreck involving four vehicles has left an Orange woman in the hospital with critical injuries.

At about 9 p.m. Tuesday, a wreck occurred on FM 1442 near the entrance to St. Paul United Methodist Church. A white Dodge pickup truck driven by a 37-year-old Vidor man was traveling north on FM 1442 when it struck the back of gray Honda driven by a 20-year-old Orange County woman with her 1-year-old son as a passenger.
The force of the impact caused the Honda to go into the path of oncoming traffic and struck a red Honda SUV driven by a 74-year-old Orange woman. Both vehicles received heavy damages.
The pickup truck continued north about a mile down the road when it struck a black Toyota. It then hit a privacy fence and the corner of house at the intersection of FM 1442 and Lafitte Street before finally coming to a stop.
At both wreck scenes, debris littered the roadway. There were parts to the vehicles, stuffed animals and personal belongings among the shards of glass.
The 74-year-old woman received life threatening injuries and was flown by helicopter to St. Elizabeth hospital where she remains in stable condition. The remaining victims were treated at area hospitals.
According to Richard Teague, of the Bridge City Police Department, the cause of the wreck is still under investigation. Charges are pending.
