BALMORHEA-A deadly 10-car pileup that occurred during last weekend’s winter ice storm on Interstate 10 in Balmorhea, left an Arizona woman and her two cats homeless.
Margie Yates, who was on her way back to Arizona from visiting her son in Austin, crashed her motor home into one of the several vehicles that was involved in the wreck.
Everything Yates had own was inside of that motor home, including her two Siamese cats, which were rescued by both DPS Sergeant Orr and Pecos firefighter Noel Ybarra.
Yates suffered minor injuries and was released from Medical Center Hospital yesterday morning. Her son from Utah picked her up and they were able to recover most of her belongings from her motor home along with her cats, Mocha and Latte.
Yates says, Mocha and Latte are still shaken up, but were happy to see their momma.
During the spring, if Yates health permits for it, she plans on buying another motor home and continuing her adventure she set out on with Mocha and Latte.
