MARBLE FALLS — A four-car collision on FM 2147 West temporarily stalled traffic and caused a company vehicle to roll over into an embankment adjacent to the Channel Oaks subdivision, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The drivers of a 2003 Chevrolet Suburban, a 2010 Mazda sport-utility vehicle, a 2003 Ford F-250 and a 1995 Ford Ranger were not injured, and “failure to control speed” might have contributed to the collision, according to DPS Trooper Andrew Thomas.

According to the report, the Ford Ranger traveling south stopped just before 10:30 a.m. to make a left turn onto Creek Drive, about three miles from the U.S. 281 intersection.

The Ford F-250, registered to NCM Demolition and Remediation, and the Mazda SUV stopped behind the pickup.

A Chevy Suburban, also traveling south, failed to stop and struck the Mazda, which then collided with the F-250.

The F-250 clipped the back left bumper of the Ranger, registered to Davey Resource Group, left the roadway and rolled down the embankment, the report stated.

“It was just like dominoes,” Thomas said.

The driver of the F-250 was treated and released by emergency workers on the scene.

Crews temporarily delayed traffic as workers cleared the scene. DPS cleared the scene at 12:08 p.m.

The investigation is continuing.

Personnel from the Marble Falls Volunteer Fire Department, the Marble Falls Area EMS, the Horseshoe Bay Fire Rescue and the Cottonwood Shores Police Department worked the accident along with the DPS.
