Third rollover accident in three days

FORNEY, Texas – The Forney Police Department, Forney Fire Department, and ETMC were dispatched to their third rollover accident call in three days early this morning, April 1, 2014, just after midnight.
Dispatchers from Forney received a call about the vehicle, a pickup truck traveling westbound, which veered off of U.S. Highway 80 and began to overturn near the service road. The vehicle rolled over the service road and finally came to a rest on its wheels facing the wrong direction near Chick-fil-A.

The scene of this rollover accident was more severe than the prior two accidents. A door from the truck was removed to extricate the driver who was transported to Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, by an East Texas Medical Center ambulance.

The cause of the accident is still unknown. A request for additional information has been made and is still pending.

The prior two rollover accidents also occurred on westbound U.S. Highway 80 but on the west side of Forney, Texas, between Pinson Road/Farm-to-Market (FM) 740 and Lovers Lane. The female driver of the first accident on Saturday was seen walking around the accident scene after the accident and was also arrested for causing an accident involving damage to a vehicle greater than or equal to $200, a class B misdemeanor, for leaving the scene of a prior accident.

The condition on the female driver of the second rollover accident on Monday is unknown. She was transferred to Forney's Lake Pointe Emergency Department.

The westbound service road was temporarily closed while crews cleaned up miscellaneous debris from the accident.
