A woman was transported to the hospital after her vehicle veered off of U.S. Highway 75 and drove into a Sherman creek Friday morning.
At about 8:35 a.m., a blue Hyundai sedan traveling southbound on Highway 75 veered to the left and into the median. Sherman Police Officer Tim Gann said the vehicle struck a concrete barrier for the northbound lanes then drove down the median and into Post Oak Creek, south of West Park Avenue.
Emergency personnel responded to the scene, and entered the creek. The driver was the only occupant, and she was transported to Wilson N. Jones Regional Medical Center for injuries that did not appear life-threatening, Gann said. No other vehicles were involved.
“At this point in time, it’s still under investigation,” Gann said. “I don’t even know the cause or the apparent reason for why she left the roadway at this point in time.”
With cables attached to the vehicle, a wrecker pulled the vehicle from the creek about an hour after the crash.
