According to the Weatherford Police Department, Hagood was driving a 2008 blue Toyota Tundra Saturday night that flipped over in the 2100 block of I-20 West, causing the passenger in the front seat of the pickup to be ejected, sustaining serious bodily injuries. The flipped Toyota caused multiple other vehicles to crash.

“Our officers were dispatched to the area of 405/406 mile markers on Interstate 20 regarding a major accident involving multiple vehicles, which ended up being 11 total,” WPD Sgt.
