Driver escapes injury in rollover crash

By CHRIS AGEE | cagee@mineralwellsindex.com

A single-vehicle crash early Thursday morning damaged a van and a private fence, though the only occupant involved was not injured.

Mineral Wells police reports indicate the crash happened around 2:52 a.m. in the 4100 block of Municipal Highway 379.

Harris Willis Johnson, 48, of Mineral Wells, was reportedly driving west along MH 379 when he left the road surface and struck an elevated portion of property containing a culvert.

Reports indicate the impact caused Johnson’s 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan to become airborne, rolling over to the left side of the road and damaging much of an adjacent fence.

The van ultimately came to rest upright, the report states, and Johnson was not taken to the hospital.

Investigators listed driver inattention as a possible contributing factor but no charges were included against Johnson.
