While heading to a structure fire on Sunday afternoon, the driver, 26 year old Leonard Doyle Johnston, lost control on Highway 63 near County Road 1067 in Burkeville.  After heavy rains, the roadway was slick.  His 2009 Dodge pickup was traveling eastbound and went off the road striking several trees before coming to a stop.  Johnston was transported by ambulance to Jasper Memorial Hospital for treatment and is believed to be recovering with minor injuries.  This report comes to us by Trooper, Stephanie Davis.  All information is preliminary as Troopers continue to investigate the crash.  Photo courtesy Charles Duckworth.
