There were 40 vehicles involved in reported crashes on RM 2222 in Four Points, and 134 vehicles involved in reported crashes on RM 620 from Mansfield Dam to Anderson Mill.
The data — compiled by Texas Department of Transportation at the request of Four Points News — shows speed and alcohol were factors in a small number of accidents. It is noteworthy that four of the crashes involved motorcycles which is disproportionate compared to the small number of motorcycles typically on the roadways.

Of the 40 total, one crash was an alcohol-related crash, one was a speed-related crash, and one was a motorcycle-related crash with suspected serious injuries.
