Another week, another Lewisville home falling victim to an out of control car ramming into it. The front end of the car was completely destroyed Thursday when it rammed into a house on Bay De Vieux. Lewisville FD was on the scene and quickly pulled out saws and lumber to secure the house. As our photographer was walking away, a resident stated "There's a kid here that is always zooming through the neighborhood and he drives a white Lexus."

LLELA Lewisville Lake held a preview tour of its new approximately 2 mile Blackjack trail Saturday for friends and volunteers. The newly-constructed trail begins near the greenhouse on the western side of the 2,000 acre property, and connects at the parking lot for the Beaver Pond paddling trail. The trail contains great examples of the Cross Timbers forest, including Blackjack Oak, Post Oak, and Hickory, but also includes a meandering stream, prairie glades, and mesquite savanna areas.
LLELA will make some finishing touches in some places, and is expected to open the trail to the public in a few weeks.
With the addition of the Blackjack Trail, LLELA will have roughly 8 miles of connected hiking trails.
A wreck involving a UPS truck, a blue SUV, and a fence occurred Wednesday morning on Valley Pkwy between Round Grove and Corporate Dr. It appeared that the collision caused the UPS truck to jump the curb, and slam into a neighboring fence, ripping it from its corner post. Fresh tire treads lay embedded in the dirt. No injuries from both drivers, however the UPS driver appeared shaken up by the whole situation.
