Teen airlifted after crash

By CHRIS AGEE

A passenger involved in a two-vehicle collision Saturday evening was transported via air ambulance to a Fort Worth hospital for treatment.

According to Mineral Wells police reports, the crash occurred shortly before 7:30 p.m. in the 100 block of North Oak Avenue.

Investigators reported Matthew Guy Ewing, 24, of Mineral Wells, was driving his 1987 Toyota Tacoma south along North Oak Avenue, traveling behind a 2002 Ford Expedition driven by Debbie Southern Webb, 58, of Mineral Wells.

Police say Ewing failed to stop before striking Webb's vehicle in the rear, causing it to collide with a nearby building.

The investigator's report indicates a witness told police he saw Ewing traveling at a high speed just before the crash.

Emergency personnel reportedly transported Ewing to Palo Pinto General Hospital and his passenger, a 16-year-old female, was airlifted to Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth. According to the report, Webb did not require medical treatment and a family member transported her from the scene.

Ewing faces a complaint of failure to control speed and investigators also listed driver inattention as a contributing factor.

Police noted the charge was Ewing's second in as many days, explaining he was involved in a single-vehicle crash Friday afternoon in the 1300 block of S.E. 12th Street.

Police reports indicate Ewing was driving a 1998 Chevrolet Blazer shortly before 4 p.m., having just left a residence.

Investigators determined he began traveling east and unsafely accelerated, drove the vehicle over a curb and struck a chain-link fence at the corner of S.E. 14th Avenue and 12th Street.

The report concluded Ewing sustained minor injuries and was cited for failure to control speed. The only other occupant involved, a 2-year-old male, was not injured.
