(6/20/14) — A vehicle accident on Depot Street Friday, June 20 slowed traffic as utility trucks worked to repair damages after a driver lost control of his Dodge Ram pickup while rounding a curve on West Depot Street.

According to James Wilson, who witnessed the incident, the truck was driving at a high rate of speed and, “ran off the road, hitting the concrete culvert. Then the truck knocked over a mail box, ran up an embankment, struck a light pole breaking the pole and tearing the wheel off the truck."  Wilson was surprised the driver walked away from the accident without injury.
