Mustang causes three-car accident in Willow Park

July 8, 2010 by Dominic Genetti

1-20 accident: A Willow Park firefighter cleans debris following an afternoon accident along I-20 near the Lake Weatherford exit Wednesday.

No one was injured in a three-car accident along eastbound Interstate-20 yesterday when a Ford Mustang did not stop in time while traveling in a construction zone.

The accident occurred near exit 415 (the Lake Weatherford exit) when the driver of a Ford Mustang slammed into the rear of a Chevrolet Avalanche which in turn sent the pickup into the pickup in front of it.

According to Willow Park Police Chief Brad Johnson, traffic was stop and go due to construction and the driver of the Mustang could not stop in time as traffic came to a halt.

Neighbors, victims to address vicious dog issue

June 21, 2010 by Dominic Genetti

Among the many water and road discussions that are on tonight's Willow Park City Council agenda, one of the new business topics includes an amendment to the city's animal control ordinance.

Mayor Ken Hawkins said the proposal will indicate how many animals citizens can have. According to the agenda, the proposal will include "other provisions for an efficient and enforceable animal control procedure.

The proposal, which is listed third in the new business portion of the meeting, comes after Willow Park residents Bill and Harlene Newhart and Leda Wilson had livestock attacked by dogs owned by their neighbor Gary Stevenson.

The three parties reside near the corner of Buena Vista Drive and Emsley Drive in the northern area of the city.
