Staff Report

Denton police said a man crashed his car into a fence near East Sycamore and Bell Avenue at 8 p.m. Thursday.

Officer Ryan Grelle, spokesman for Denton police, said the investigation determined the driver had lost control of his vehicle, left the roadway and struck a 3-foot yellow concrete traffic barrier and fence belonging to a nearby business.

The man had minor injuries, police said, and refused medical attention.

The wet streets from Thursday’s storms may have been a contributing factor to the accident, police said.
