3-vehicle accident shuts down FM 4

A traffic accident involving three vehicles temporarily shut down a portion of Farm-to-Market Road 4 near the intersection of Second Street on Thursday morning. Cleburne police and firefighters responded to the scene at about 10:50 a.m.

The driver of a Toyota Tacoma, traveling westbound on FM 4, rear-ended a Kia Rio 5 traveling the same direction. The impact caused the Kia to spin around and come to rest facing southbound in a bar ditch and resulted in substantial damage to both vehicles. Neither driver suffered injury although rescue workers checked out the Kia driver, but did not transport her to the hospital.

A third man driving an SUV arrived on scene while police were talking to the Toyota and Kia drivers. The man said he was in front of the Kia and said the impact of the initial crash caused the Kia to hit the back of, but not seriously damage, the back of his SUV. Police were more interested in determining why the man left the scene after the accident.

Officials temporarily closed the road until tow trucks could clear the scene given that the vehicles partially blocked the westbound lane and construction was under way in the Second Street intersection.

Police also responded to a single-vehicle accident with no injuries at 1:45 p.m. Monday in the 1000 block of FM 4.

The driver of a Chevrolet Silverado, traveling eastbound, failed to control his speed, slid off the road and struck a sign. Police cited the driver for failure to control speed.

Police responded to calls involving theft from a vehicle and vehicle burglary on Wednesday.

Police responded to the first call at 1:08 p.m. in the 1400 block of Wedgewood Drive. Someone stole the license plate from the victim’s vehicle.

Police responded to the second call at 1:22 p.m. in the 100 block of South Oran Avenue. Someone stole a pink wallet with diamond pistols containing $350, identification and a Social Security card from the victim’s vehicle.
