A Grayson County Sheriff’s Office corporal is recovering after he sustained minor injuries in a two-vehicle collision in Sherman on Saturday night.
Capt. Sarah Bigham said Cpl. Darius Riddick was traveling on Texoma Parkway at approximately 11 p.m. Saturday as he responded to a call. Bigham said the corporal, who has been with the agency since 2006, entered the roadway’s intersection with U.S. Highway 82 and collided with another vehicle.
“I know that he had his lights and sirens activated at the time of the accident, so he was on a priority call,” Bigham said.
Riddick was taken to an area hospital for treatment and was released later that night. The driver of the other vehicle also sustained minor injuries, but refused medical attention at the scene.
“We’re just thankful for the vehicles that we have and the safety equipment that’s available in them,” Bigham said.
The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating the collision.
