Driver Injured In Violent Crash

Accident-Brogden-Rd-3One person was seriously injured when their truck ran off Brogden Road early-Sunday. The accident happened around 4:00 AM in the 2100 block of Brogden Road.

A Ford F150 pickup was traveling eastbound when it ran off the roadway, struck a driveway culvert then two trees before coming to rest near the front door of a home. 

The impact was so violent, a battery was thrown from the wreckage and landed on top of a neighbor’s roof, according to fire officials.  Tools and truck parts were scattered over a wide area, including the back axle from the truck which was knocked free from the vehicle.
