A man escaped potentially fatal injuries Wednesday afternoon when his car slammed into the rear of a cattle trailer and overturned near Dibrell. The man, Jacob Simpson, 28, suffered leg injuries and was treated at River Park Hospital despite the passenger compartment of his car being crushed by impact with the rear of the cattle trailer at highway speed. The driver of the 1996 Ford 350 that was pulling the cattle trailer, George Edward Green, 45, was not injured although the empty cattle trailer he was towing turned over and separated from his vehicle during the crash.
