One person was hospitalized Monday morning following a two-vehicle collision in Sherman.
Sherman Police Sgt. D.M. Hampton said the wreck occurred at the intersection of Lamar Street and Grand Avenue, when the driver of a gold Ford pickup, headed north on Grand Avenue, failed to yield at a stop sign and proceeded into the intersection. Hampton said the gold pickup was then struck by a red pickup traveling on Lamar Street.
“The gold Ford pickup, actually spun around and hit a telephone pole, before it landed in a yard there on the northeast corner of that intersection,” Hampton said.
The Sherman Police sergeant said the two occupants of the gold pickup were from Cooper, which lies roughly 20 miles north of Sulphur Springs, and the male driver of the vehicle was transported to Wilson N. Jones Regional Medical Center with neck and leg pain. The three occupants of the red pickup, including a child in a car seat, were not injured.
Hampton said he did not know whether the department would issue any citations against the driver of the gold pickup.
