Icy road a contributing factor in fatal Johnson County wreck

The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating a fatality accident that occurred Friday morning along County Road 1126B near Godley.

At around 10:15am, multiple emergency responders from Johnson County, AMR, Johnson County sheriffs deputies and DPS troopers were called to the scene of a one-vehicle accident in the 6600 block of County Road 1126B just before County Road 1006 southeast of Godley.

A preliminary investigation of the scene indicates a driver was traveling east on the county road when icy conditions caused him to lose control of his vehicle. The vehicle slid off the roadway and hit a metal pole.

The driver of the vehicle, identified as a 65-year-old man, was pronounced deceased at the scene. He lived a few blocks away from the accident scene.

A passenger in the vehicle was treated and released.

The investigation is still ongoing.
