Five transported

January 1, 2014


First responders sort out the damage following a three-vehicle crash that occurred at about 7 p.m. Sunday in front of McDonald’s in the 3800 block of Highway 377 East that sent five people to area hospitals. That busy stretch of road, which is also near H-E-B, continues to be a trouble spot for accidents. A 4-year-old boy was injured and listed in “fair” condition at Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth as of Monday afternoon according to a hospital spokesperson. He was a passenger in a 1990 Pontiac. A 16-year-old Granbury girl, driving a 2010 Nissan, failed to yield right-of-way and was struck by the Pontiac, according to Deputy Chief Alan Hines of the Granbury Police Department. The third vehicle, a 2011 Dodge pickup driven by a 17-year-old Cresson boy, was then struck by the Nissan while waiting in a turn lane, Hines said. One of the injured was taken by private vehicle later to Cook Children’s. Three were transported by ambulance to Lake Granbury Medical Center with injuries that also were not believed to be life-threatening.
