One man was flown to Texas Health Fort Worth Monday evening after a one-vehicle accident on County Road 4925 south of Rhome. Jaskavan Dhillon, 41, of Fort Worth was speeding northbound on 4925 about 4:20 p.m. when he lost control of his vehicle, according to DPS Trooper Zeb Siebenick.
Siebenick said Jaskavan’s pickup veered to the right, to the left and then rolled. It crashed through a barbed wire fence and hit a tree, landing upside down. Dhillon was trapped in the vehicle, and firefighters had to turn it upright and peel the roof back to get him out. Trooper Siebeneck said synthetic marijuana and several open containers of alcohol were found in the vehicle, and he believed this likely contributed to the accident.
Although Jaskavan’s injuries were serious, he was in stable condition at the scene.
