Evelon Dale, a 63-year old Harlingen woman who was well known throughout Cameron County and beyond for her volunteerism as well as being a champion of a number of political and social causes, was the subject of a chaotic scene Monday afternoon at the intersection of Business 77 and Sam Houston Boulevard in San Benito as emergency personnel rushed to Dale’s aide upon being involved in a minor traffic collision.
According to police reports, Dale, who was driving a white pick-up truck, reportedly collided into a newer-model Lincoln Navigator at the 900 block of Sam Houston and was found unresponsive inside her vehicle. Emergency personnel exercised all efforts to try and resuscitate Dale, however, they were unsuccessful and she was later pronounced dead at Valley Baptist Medical Center in Harlingen.
