Weatherford man dies from wreck injuries

A Weatherford man died late Wednesday after he was severely injured at about 5:30 p.m. in a two-vehicle wreck northwest of Weatherford, according to reports.

Cole Parsons, 19, died at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, about five hours after the wreck on Farm Road 1885, the Tarrant County medical examiner's office reported.

According to a report from the Texas Department of Public Safety, Parsons was driving a 2000 Isuzu Rodeo west on FM 1885 behind a Chevrolet pickup driven by Kenneth King, also of Weatherford.

The pickup slowed down because of traffic ahead, but the Isuzu could not slow down in time to avoid striking the back of the truck, the DPS reported.

Parsons wore a seat belt, the DPS reported, but his injuries were severe. He was taken to JPS where he was pronounced dead at 10:46 p.m., the medical examiner's office reported.

No other information was immediately available Thursday morning.
