Firefighter reports near-miss in two-vehicle call

An off-duty firefighter traveling southwest on Texas 171 near Godley may have narrowly missed a potentially dangerous accident Saturday evening, Sheriff Bob Alford said.

Another vehicle traveling northeast on the two-lane road was reportedly traveling at 90 mph and nearly struck the firefighter's vehicle. The other vehicle proceeded toward Cresson, according to sheriff's radio traffic. Neither party was injured, Alford said. Johnson County's dispatch notified Hood and Parker County, but the other party is not believed to have been located. A vehicle description was not immediately available.
