The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office says they received a 9-1-1 cell phone call at around 9:15-a.m. about the crash west of Nature Avenue, on 200th Street. When deputies arrived, they determined a 2000 Chevy 1500 pickup, owned and operated by 64-year old Gary Merl Jackson, of Stanton, was traveling west on 200th Street and had attempted to pass a tractor.

In the process, Jackson noticed an eastbound vehicle approaching. He locked-up his pickup’s brakes and cut -in behind the tractor before the pickup caught traction on the pavement and rolled onto its top. Damage to the vehicle was estimated at $8,000. No citations were issued.
