Jaws of Life


Azle firefighters utilize the Jaws of Life to cut through the doorpost of a black 2000 Ford F350 pickup Sunday evening, Jan. 12. Trapped inside the pickup was its driver, Glyn Ray Williams, 52, of Azle, who sustained serious injuries when his vehicle rolled and came to rest on its side in the 1500 block of SH 199 West. It took firefighters from Azle and Parker County Emergency Services District 1 more than a half hour to extricate Williams from his vehicle, which scattered all manner of tools, hunting equipment, and even an animal carcass along the roadway and in the median as it rolled. Azle police also removed several firearms from the pickup at the scene. No other vehicles were involved, and the accident report filed by Azle Officer C. Kidd indicates Williams may have been fatigued when the crash occurred.    Photo by Carla Noah Stutsman
