Speed causes wreck
A pickup truck traveling too fast for the road conditions went off the highway and wrecked. The accident happened on December 30 at roughly 7 a.m. Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Aaron Emmick filed the accident report.
Tyler W. Coppage, of Falls of Rough, told Emmick that as he drove his 2001 Ford F-250 north on state Route 69, about five miles south of Hawesville, he entered into a curve at too high of speed. His pickup slid off the highway, hit a white vinyl split rail fence, a mailbox and a fence around a horse pasture before coming to rest in the field.
Coppage did not suffer injury. His pickup sustained moderate to severe damage. A wrecker from Mattingly’s towed the truck from the scene.
Car slides off road
No one suffered injury when wet pavement caused a vehicle to slide off the roadway and into a ditch. The accident happened on January 3 at roughly 9 a.m. Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeff Hendrick filed the accident report.
David Turner, of Hawesville, told Hendrick that as he drove his 2002 Pontiac Grand Am north on state Route 69, approximately two miles south of Hawesville, he came to a curve. The wet pavement caused his car to lose traction, slide into the opposite lane and then into a ditch, where the vehicle came to rest. The car sustained very severe damage and a wrecker from Bob’s Garage towed it from the scene.
