Semi driver in stable condition

DENISON -- A 40-year old truck driver is listed in stable condition Tuesday night after his semi flipped and landed sideways on Highway 75 on Monday.

That accident backed up traffic for hours Monday night.

Denison Police say the man swerved after a Jeep next to him came into his lane and brushed the truck. The driver lost control, rolling the truck.

Sherrie Barber says she was behind the semi.

"It makes me want to park my truck and never drive it again. It’s really hard when someone’s begging for help and you can’t help them," Barber said.

Emergency workers spent two hours trying to get the semi driver, Timothy Sharp, out of the truck.

The Jeep driver was not seriously injured.

The Denison Fire Department spent hours cleaning up debris off of the highway.

They say they reopened U.S. 75 around three o'clock Tuesday morning.

Another accident on Highway 56

Grayson County Sheriff’s Deputies say another accident on Highway 56 happened around eleven o'clock on Tuesday morning.
