Authorities had not released his name.

Patrol officers responded to a major accident call shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday in the 2500 block of Jackboro Highway. The motorist stopped after the accident, and a preliminary report indicated that no charges are expected against the driver.

Neither speed nor alcohol was a factor in the accident, police said.

Westbound lanes of Jacksboro Highway were closed for several hours Sunday morning as authorities investigated.
