Three persons were injured in a two-vehicle accident that occurred about 5:40 p.m. Friday at the intersection of Highway 36 and FM 107 in Gatesville. According to the police report, Amanda Ann Barton, 18, of Gatesville, was driving a 2015 Ford Escape southbound on Highway 36. She attempted to turn left onto FM 107 and was struck by a 2008 Ford 450 tow truck that was towing another vehicle. Barton and the tow truck driver, Rory Mitchell Jackson, 26, of Hico, were transported to Coryell Memorial Hospital in Gatesville. A passenger in Barton’s vehicle was taken by ambulance to Scott & White Hospital in Temple. Two other passengers in Barton’s vehicle and one in the tow truck refused treatment, Lt.
