Driver killed in head-on crash south of Springtown

The Texas Department of Public Safety says one person was killed yesterday in a two-vehicle crash south of Springtown.

At 2:16pm, firefighters from Parker County Emergency Services District 1, paramedics from PCHD EMS, and multiple law enforcement officers were dispatched to Farm to Market Road 51 and Carter Road for a head-on collision crash.

A preliminary investigation of the scene revealed the driver of a southbound vehicle swerved into the oncoming lanes of traffic to avoid a turning vehicle and collided head-on with a northbound vehicle.

The driver of the northbound vehicle was pronounced deceased at the scene by PCHD EMS paramedics. He has been identified as a 74-year-old male from Weatherford.

The other driver, a 36-year-old man, was transported to a Fort Worth hospital in stable condition.

The crash remains under investigation.
