Two people were transported to the hospital after a vehicle struck a Texas Department of Transportation truck on U.S. Highway 75 Friday morning.

At about 10:12 a.m., police and firefighters were called to respond to the two-vehicle collision on the northbound highway lanes just south of the Loy Lake Road overpass in Sherman. A TxDOT truck in the left lane was struck from behind by a wrecker, Sherman Police Sgt. D.M. Hampton said.

The collision caused the TxDOT truck to spin around and come to a stop in the center median. The wrecker crossed the right lane and came to stop in the median between the service road and highway. The wrecker sparked small grass fire near the right shoulder before it stopped. Hampton said it was unclear if the TxDOT truck was stopped or moving at a crawl when it was hit.

The drivers of both vehicles were transported to local hospitals, and Hampton noted the driver of the wrecker suffered injuries to his head. The injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

Hampton said the driver of the wrecker is a 21-year-old male from Denison. He was in good condition as of late Friday afternoon. The driver of the TxDOT truck is a 50-year-old male from Telephone. Hampton had no update on his status Friday afternoon.

Both of the northbound lanes were shut down for about 45 minutes as crews cleared the scene, and traffic was diverted to the service road. The right northbound lane reopened shortly before 11 a.m.
