A two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Highway 8 and College Farm Road, which occurred shortly before 11 a.m. on Saturday, claimed one life.
James Wilson, 68, of Stephenville, was a passenger in an eastbound Chevrolet Cavalier that was attempting to turn north on College Farm Road from Hwy 8 when the vehicle was struck by a westbound Chevrolet Silverado that was hauling a flatbed trailer.
“Basically (the driver) tried to turn left and didn’t have enough time,” Stephenville Police Officer Brandon Boen, who was investigating the wreck, said.
The Cavalier was driven by Ouida Hise, 78, of Stephenville. Hise was taken via ambulance to the airport, where Care Flite transported her to a Fort Worth hospital.
The Silverado was driven by 40-year-old David Wilson, no relation to James Wilson, of Stephenville.
