Work Place Accident
Update on Andy’s Tire Incident from Yesterday
The patient that was transported after an accident at Andy’s Tire Service is Lucas Ward, 20, of Stephenville. Ward is a graduate of Stephenville High School. According to Ward, he was putting jack stands underneath an 18-wheeler when the floor jack gave out and the front bumper pinned his neck to the ground. About 5 co-workers were near him and were able to use a floor jack to lift the truck up just enough to free Lucas. He was then flown by air ambulance to JPS in Fort Worth and released to go home today. Ward suffered a broken shoulder blade in two places and heavy bruising in the neck.
