Two injured in one-car wreck


PALO PINTO COUNTY – Both lanes of traffic were closed along U.S. Highway 281 north of Mineral Wells for about 15 minutes Tuesday morning as a rescue helicopter landed to transport one occupant of a single-vehicle crash to a Fort Worth hospital.

The crash happened shortly before 11 a.m. just south of Salesville Road.

According to a Department of Public Safety trooper at the scene, the cause of the wreck is not yet known, though he said the vehicle was heading south before the driver apparently lost control.

The Chevrolet Cavalier traveled across the northbound lane of traffic and hit a roadside ditch, colliding with a fence.

Authorities said a female occupant was taken via air ambulance to John Peter Smith Hospital while the other occupant, a male, was transported by ambulance to Palo Pinto General Hospital.

Other details were not available from DPS Tuesday.
