Lamar County woman's trial to begin Monday


Hunt County, Delta County – Officials are now ready to proceed in the case of a Lamar County woman.

Trial will begin Monday for 44-year-old Vicki Dawn Szalay, of Sumner. Szalay was arrested in July, 2008 following a high speed chase through Delta and Hunt County. She's pleaded not guilty to charges of evading arrest and child endangerment for having two children in the back seat of the vehicle she was driving at the time.

Commerce Police are said to have chased Szalay at a speed well over the legal limit east on Highway 224 and then northbound onto Highway 50 before the chase finally ended without incident just south of Cooper.
