Accident Results In One Fatality
A collision last night resulted in one fatality. According to Wichita Falls Police, George Ward was driving a 2000 Chevy Trailblazer northbound in the 1300 block of Old Burk Road. Ward was in a curve on the road when his vehicle crossed the yellow line striking an 18 wheeler. Ward was taken to United Regional where he died of his injuries just before midnight. The driver of the truck suffered only minor injuries. Several fire units and hazmat were called to the scene due to a minor oil spill from the tanker the semi was pulling. Wards body has been sent to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner for autopsy. Further details are pending the coroners report.
