Two people were injured in a wreck Friday evening on the city's eastside.

The incident occurred about 7:15 p.m. at the intersection of N.E. 2nd Street and U.S. Highway 180 East.

Police said a vehicle attempted to turn left onto eastbound U.S. 180 when it was broadsided by a westbound vehicle.

A request was made for two medical helicopters, though just one was able to respond, according to police. The highway was temporarily closed to allow the helicopter to land and take off.

One person was reportedly flown from the scene to a Fort Worth hospital while another was taken to an area hospital by ground ambulance.

Other details were not available Saturday.
