GARLAND, TX—Alcohol was a suspected factor in two recent MVA collisions in Van Alstyne, which is about 18 miles north of McKinney, and borders Collin and Grayson County.

Both auto crashes occurred Monday night, February 1, between 7:00 and 10:00 pm. The first accident happened on US Highway 75 when a Ford Explorer traveling south in a northbound lane slammed into a Toyota Camry.  Although both drivers were sent to Wilson N. Jones Medical Center in Sherman, according to police, their bodily injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

In a separate motor vehicle accident, Bobbi Lalonde, 44, of Denison, was driving south in the northbound lane of US Highway 75 near Farmington when the second wreck occurred just after 9 p.m.  The victim, a Garland resident, was killed.  A Van Alstyne police spokeswoman said Lalonde was booked into the Grayson County Jail on suspicion of intoxication manslaughter.
