On June 4th 2019, there was an early morning auto pedestrian accident on Timberland Drive in Lufkin. A woman was critically injured around 5:45am when she crossed into the path of an oncoming Chevy Camaro. This happened right in front of the Sun N Pines Motel.

Ruby Adams succumbed to her injuries later that day. They were having a hard time yesterday notifying next of kin and asked for everyone's help. Luckily they have found her extended family members.

Lufkin Police & Fire - UPDATE: We have now spoken with extended family members of Ruby Adams, 57, the woman killed in the auto-pedestrian accident earlier this week. Thank you for sharing this post and helping us get the word out.

Yesterday while the search for family members was underway, there were plenty of people that knew her but did not know her families whereabouts. LPD posted this to facebook, along with a picture.

The woman killed in the auto-pedestrian accident earlier this week on Timberland Drive is identified as Ruby Adams, 57, of Lufkin.
Though there are people familiar with Ms. Adams here in Lufkin, we have been unable to locate any family members. At this time we are asking for the public’s help.
Ms. Adams has also apparently gone by the last names of Maxey and Crawford and appears to have previously lived in the Texas cities of Lubbock, Joshua and Cleburne.
“These situations are always so sad and we hate for family – estranged or not – to find out about the passing of a loved one in this manner,” Public Relations Specialist Jessica Pebsworth said. “Unfortunately, this is a last resort to reunite her with loved ones.”
If anyone knows of family for Ms. Adams or is related to Ms. Adams, please contact the Department at 936-633-0356.
