What to do if you’ve been in a car accident
A 71-year-old Bedford man was killed Sunday in northeast Fort Worth when his vehicle skidded across three lanes of traffic and struck a cement divider, police said.
Jerry Lynn Crawford died at 4:47 p.m. Sunday in Grapevine’s Baylor Scott & White Medical Center, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office. His cause of death was blunt-force injuries, the medical examiner reported, and the incident was ruled an accident.
Crawford was driving a white Ford westbound near 15000 Airport Freeway in lane 3 when his car crossed three lanes of traffic, police said. The Ford hit the cement divider in the middle of the road, police said, before sliding sideways into lane 1 and rolling over.
It’s unclear why the car veered across the lanes of traffic.
There were no witnesses to the crash, police said.
