One man was taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening Wednesday after two vehicles collided on U.S. Highway 75 in Sherman.
Sherman Police said the wreck occurred at approximately 12:40 p.m. in the southbound lanes of the highway, just past the Travis Street exit. The injured male driver was attempting to merge his gold sedan onto the highway when he struck the rear passenger side of a silver Honda CR-V. The gold sedan came to a rest in the middle of the roadway, while the female driver of the Honda SUV was able to steer the vehicle over to the shoulder. Police said the the woman sustained no injuries in the crash. The male motorist was transported from the scene by ambulance.
Sherman Police and Sherman Fire-Rescue diverted all southbound traffic from the freeway and down the Travis Street exit, while they spent roughly 45 minutes clearing the scene.
Sherman Police officer Mark Wood said no citations would be issued, and he encouraged motorists to reduce their speed and exercise caution when attempting to merge onto the highway.
