Wrecks claims Dubliner

A single-vehicle accident claimed the life of John Brandon, 83, of Dublin on Monday.

Brandon was traveling west on Highway 8 in Erath in a 2006 Chevrolet pick-up, Texas DPS Public Information Officer Dub Gillum said. At approximately 2:45 p.m., the pick-up drove straight across the eastbound lane, off the roadway and into a creek.

Highway patrol is investigating the nature of this crash as it is not known what caused the truck to leave the westbound lane. DPS suspects that medical conditions might have been a factor.

Brandon was pronounced dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace Shawnee Bass and taken to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office for exact cause of death.

No further information is available as of press time.
