Man identified in deadly rollover accident

MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) - A 40-year-old Waco man has died from a rollover accident that occurred Friday afternoon on I-35.

The accident happened about 12:35 p.m., between the Meyers Ln. and Craven Ave. exits on I-35. A witness at the scene said a white pickup truck was northbound on the interstate, when the vehicle blew a tire on the driver side and rolled over.

The witness said the truck rolled four times, and ended up on the I-35 access road. The witness reports the victim had open head lacerations and was unconscious following the wreck.

"They were using rods to break the door, and they still couldn't free him from the vehicle and the doctor was there applying pressure to the head. He had an open head laceration," Tina Smith, a witness at the scene, said.

Walter Todd Courtney was taken to Hillcrest, and was initially in critical condition, but has since died. Authorities say the driver was wearing a seat belt. DPS, Bellmead PD, Lacy Lakeview Fire and PD assisted at the wreck.
