Motorist Finds Vehicle that Hit a Tree
On Saturday, January 19, at about 6:00 a.m., a motorist called the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, and reported that he was on his way home from work when he came up on a vehicle that had hit a tree, but that there was no one in the vehicle and no one around the area.
Deputy Ayres with the Sheriff’s Department responded, along with DPS Trooper Weiser, to the scene, which was on CR 309 approximately 3 miles north of FM 696 in Lexington.
Trooper Weiser was able to make contact with the owner of the vehicle, as well as the driver, William Bullock, 23 of Lexington, to get the report. Bullock, who was driving a 2006 Ford Focus, reported that he was going home around 3:45 that morning, traveling north on CR 309 in a left curve. A deer entered the roadway, so he took evasive action in order to avoid the deer, striking the tree instead.
