The driver was reportedly treated and released by LifeCare.
Information on the incident was not available Monday from DPS.
Rollover in front of police station
Weatherford police didn’t have go far to respond when an SUV overturned in the police station parking lot Monday afternoon.
The 17-year-old driver of the SUV, Rachel Dean, was not believed to have sustained significant injury and was transported to the hospital by LifeCare as a precautionary measure, according to police.
Dean, the daughter of a police dispatcher, had been southbound on Santa Fe and was attempting to turn into the parking lot from the center turning lane when the wreck occurred, according to Lt. Chris Crawford.
Though northbound traffic had the right of way, a northbound vehicle in the inside lane of traffic reportedly waved the SUV driver through, according to Crawford. However, another vehicle, a car driven by 20-year-old Kristi Vasquez, was northbound in the outside lane and struck the SUV as it crossed the roadway, causing the SUV to roll and come to rest upside down in the parking lot.
Dean was able to crawl out of the vehicle before emergency responders arrived, according to police.
“Luckily, none of the parties involved were significantly injured,” Crawford said, adding that the same scenario plays out at locations across Weatherford.
Drivers should be aware of where all traffic is even if they can’t see vehicles in the other lanes, Crawford said.
