Ambulances roll on two wrecks, one transported


Ambulances from various Emergency Medical Services in Palo Pinto County responded to two accidents on Wednesday.

The first was in the heart of Mineral Wells, at the intersection of East Hubbard and SE 20th Avenue, just after 9 a.m. According to the Mineral Wells Police Department, a couple was driving their grey 2000 Chevrolet Silverado westbound along Hubbard, when the driver of a silver 2006 Dodge Ram pickup failed to yield right-of-way at the stop sign on SE 20th, driving out into Hubbard and T-boned the Silverado.

Mineral Wells EMS arrived on the scene and transported the passenger in the Chevy truck to Palo Pinto General Hospital.

Later that day, around 5:30 p.m., another accident occurred on the east side of Possum Kingdom Lake. According to Texas Department of Public Safety Senior Trooper Gary M. Rozzell, a white male from Graham was traveling on State Highway 16 at Rock Creek proper in his 2007 GMC Pickup – registered with Lee’s Interiors in Graham – hauling a flatbed trailer full of miscellaneous items. As the driver went down a hill in the area, his trailer began to fishtail. Rozzell said the driver hit the guard rail on a bridge, flipping his truck on its side and sending the trailer up over the rail.

According to the Palo Pinto County Sheriff’s Office, DPS and Possum Kingdom East EMS responded to the scene where they found the trailer hanging off of the bridge. Rozzell said the driver was able to crawl out of his truck without any serious injuries. The driver refused transport to a hospital.
