WF man injured in rollover; conflicting reports delay response


A Wichita Falls man was transported to Clay County Memorial Hospital early Wednesday morning following a one-car rollover on Hwy. 82, near the Montague County line.

Joel Wachsman, 22, suffered a possible head injury in the accident. Wachsman was a passenger in the vehicle. He and driver Jessica Satterfield, 22, also of Wichita Falls, were traveling east to Saint Jo when Satterfield attempted to avoid a coyote on the road by swerving into the eastbound median. The driver overcorrected, steering the vehicle into the westbound median. The car rolled six times, flipping over a fence and coming to a rest on the passenger’s side.

EMT’s were not immediately dispatched to the scene due to conflicting reports. At 11:54 p.m. Tuesday night, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office dispatched the accident as minor with no injuries, While DPS dispatchers had received information of a rollover.

The CCSO contacted the person reporting the accident confirmed that it had been a rollover, at which point DPS Trooper Ben Wolf told the CCSO to send an ambulance. The CCSO also dispatched Henrietta Volunteer Fire Department, which was later cancelled. It took the trooper approximately 20 minutes to locate the vehicle, which had rolled into a pasture. A county deputy arrived 10 minutes later, followed by EMT’s approximately 15 minutes after the trooper.

Wolf said both driver and passenger appeared uninjured when he first arrived on scene, but as the trooper began his investigation, Wachsman began to sweat profusely, showed symptoms of a head injury, and complained of back and neck pain.
