A two-vehicle accident left a Ford Mustang wedged underneath a tractor-trailer Monday afternoon.
First responders were dispatched at about 4:15 p.m. to the intersection of Ferris and Marvin Avenues, just outside of the Daily Light office.
Waxahachie Police officer David Bittle stated both vehicles were attempting to make a righthand turn to head north on Ferris Avenue at the time of the accident. The Mustang was in the right lane, and the semi-truck was in the left lane.
“The light turned green, and the truck started going,” Bittle said. “The Mustang then started going and ended up underneath the truck.”
Robert Bigler, the driver of the Mustang, stated when he made his turn the trailer came across the front of his vehicle.
“I pulled up here and was in the right-hand turn lane,” said Bigler, who walked out of the vehicle after firefighters removed the convertible soft-top. “I started to make my turn, and I saw the trailer coming at me. I blew the horn, but he didn’t hear me.”
Bittle stated as the semi truck turned it made a wide turn. No injuries were reported from the occupants of both vehicles.
Members of the Waxahachie Fire Department provided assistance on the call.
The accident remains under investigation at this time by the Waxahachie Police Department.
