A two-vehicle wreck caused a second collision after traffic slowed on U.S. Highway 75 in Sherman Monday.


At about 11:40 a.m., a white cargo truck was traveling southbound on Highway 75 when it struck a white Toyota minivan south of FM 691. Sherman Police Sgt. Sam Boyle said the minivan slowed as traffic increased possibly due to a road crew working farther south. The truck struck the van from behind.


The wreck injured the two occupants of the minivan, and one person was transported to the hospital. Boyle said the injures were not life-threatening. The driver of the truck was not injured.


A few minutes after the first wreck, a second wreck occurred several yards to the north. Firefighters at the scene of the first wreck described the second collision as a “fender bender.” No injuries were reported. One lane of U.S. Highway 75 was closed for about an hour as crews cleared the scene.
