Sealy Police have released information following an accident in the 2900 block of State Highway 36 South, which resulted in the death of 70 year-old Nancy Cathey of Sealy.
On Friday, May 20, first responders were called to the scene at 11:41 a.m., where Cathey’s 2006 tan Chevrolet Impala was originally southbound.
