KJAS in Jasper, TX, has shared that 45-year old Gordy Freeny, of DeRidder, LA, escaped without injury after his log truck rolled over on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, in Sabine County shortly after 3:00 p.m. on State Highway 87 about 2 miles south of Farm to Market Road 3315 in the Fairmount Community.
According to Texas Department of Public Safety Sergeant David Hendrey, Freeney was driving northbound in a 1996 Peterbilt and carrying a load of logs. Hendrey said Freeney told investigating troopers that he met a car coming at him in his lane, so he took evasive action which resulted in the truck and trailer overturning on the roadway. The driver that allegedly caused the accident did not stop, according to Hendrey.
Hendrey said Freeney was issued a citation for unsafe speed.
