Emergency workers responded to a one-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 183 North, 13 miles north of the Breckenridge city limits shortly before 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 11.

The GMC extended cab pick-up was traveling south toward Breckenridge when the driver lost control and crashed into the guardrail on the northbound side of a bridge.

Although the official cause of the accident has not been determined by the Texas Department of Public Safety, who is investigating the accident, the front driver’s side wheel was missing from the vehicle and the passenger side tire was blown out.

There were two adults and one child in the vehicle when it crashed. All three were checked out by emergency personnel from Sacred Cross Emergency Services but declined to be transported to the hospital.

Emergency crews from the Breckenridge Fire Department and the Stephens County Sheriff’s Department also responded to accident.
