A 21-year-old man was flown to a Fort Worth hospital following a one-vehicle wreck on Farm Road 2123, about two miles south of Bridgeport, Saturday afternoon.
Jacob Patrick Gentry of Edgewood was southbound on the county road around 5:15 p.m. when it appears he lost control of the white Nissan Sentra he was driving. Investigators said it appears Gentry attempted to overcorrect but ended up sliding sideways across the road. The car hit and splintered a tree then landed upside down in a thicket of brush.
Gentry was extricated and transported to a nearby field, from which he was flown to John Peter Smith Hospital.Although the details of his injuries were not known, investigators said they were “severe.”
