Jacksonville man flips SUV near San Augustine

SAN AUGUSTINE COUNTY, Texas (KTRE) - A Jacksonville man managed to avoid injury after flipping his SUV on State Highway 147 near San Augustine.

Jessie Turner, 37, said his front tire malfunctioned, causing him to roll the 1992 Ford Explorer over as he was traveling northbound, about 1.5 miles south of San Augustine, and ending up upside down in the middle of the highway at 9:50 a.m.

Turner crawled out of the SUV without being injured. A DPS trooper was on the way to the scene to investigate the wreck while a San Augustine County deputy managed traffic flow.
