UPDATE

Driver arrested following wreck


A Poolville man was arrested for driving while intoxicated following a three-vehicle wreck Thursday night around 6:40 near Cottondale. Department of Public Safety Trooper Beau Bridgeman said Makaylyn Wolff, 17, of Springtown was stopped in the northbound lane of Farm Road 51 waiting to turn left onto Farm Road 2123 when her SUV was struck from behind by a pickup driven by Casey Smith, 44, of Poolville. The impact pushed Wolff’s vehicle into the southbound lane of FM 51 where it was struck a second time by a southbound pickup driven by Jordan Crittenden, 26, of Springtown. Meanwhile, Smith’s pickup ran off the road and through a fence on the west side of the roadway. No one was seriously injured in the wreck. Smith was taken to the Wise County Jail. The wreck had FM 51 shut down for about an hour and down to one lane for about another half-hour as the scene was cleared. Two ambulances as well as the Boyd and Cottondale fire departments responded to the scene.
