Joshua teen dies in wreck north of Godley

A 17-year-old Joshua man died early Saturday in a single-vehicle rollover wreck near Godley, according to reports.

William McNicholas was identified by the Tarrant County medical examiner's office.

The wreck was reported at about 5 a.m. Saturday, according to a report from the Texas Department of Public Safety.

McNicholas was a passenger in a 1999 Dodge pickup that was westbound on Kentucky Road, the DPS reported. The area is north of Godley.

The truck was "traveling at an unsafe speed" and the driver failed to negotiate a downhill curve, the DPS reported.

The driver over-corrected, which caused the truck to overturn several times, according to the DPS.

McNicholas was pronounced dead at the scene, the medical examiner's office reported.

The driver suffered a laceration to the neck and he was taken in stable condition to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, according to the DPS. No other information was available Monday.
