December 1, 2012

Donald Curtis Kelley, a longtime Granbury resident who serves as part-time minister of visitation at Acton Methodist Church, was struck by a van shortly after 12:30 p.m. Wednesday across from the courthouse on the square in the 100 block of Pearl Street. He was treated and released at Lake Granbury Medical Center.

Kelley, reached by phone on Thursday, said that a witness stated the van rolled over both his ankles. Kelley reported that doctors told him he fortunately did not suffer any broken bones. He said his right ankle suffered a severe laceration, and his left knee was sprained and has a major contusion. He also suffered a minor concussion and has a sore neck, he said.

Kelley, 69, resides in deCordova, and has been a longtime Hood County resident. Kelley was transported to the hospital by ambulance, and was admitted in “stable” condition, an LGMC spokesman said,

The van, a 1998 Chevrolet, was driven by 27-year-old Ranae Enriquez of Granbury. The vehicle was making a left turn from North Houston Street onto East Pearl at the time, Hines said.

The driver of the van “failed to yield” right of way to the pedestrian, who was in the crosswalk, Hines said. She was ticketed with a Class C misdemeanor for an unrelated driver’s license infraction, Hines noted.
