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.

A car lost control, rolled, and then landed in a ditch near Washburn Road

Authorities say the driver may have had a medical problem while driving.

The driver was air lifted to Parkland Hospital in Dallas and is listed in critical condition.

    The bottom line here is if the person in the Jeep had been paying attention, instead of doing how knows what, in the jeep then this accident would have never happen in the first place, and no one may never know what this person was really doing

    I think that the DPS should add a section to the course that people take to include FACTS about big trucks. No, I do not drive even so much as a pick up.........but HATS OFF TO TRUCKERS!!!!!!

    Texas needs to look at what California does. California law is 55mph speed limit for 18 wheelers and vehicles pulling a trailer, boat, camper, etc.. They drive in the left lane. CHP is present and watching. Traffic moves much smoother and safer in Los Angeles, California than it does in Sherman Texas. Good job to the "Governator". Hope "Rick the D***" Perry will see the light some day. Many states also have a law that if you have to use your windshield wipers when it's raining, you must have on your headlights.edited by KXII Staff

    I agree with you trucker, if they would pass a law that you cannot drive and talk on your cell phone, I am sick and tired of people getting in the passing lane and sit there and talk on their phone, pull over on the shoulder get off the highway and then talk as long as you want to

    Have you tried to drive 80 miles an hour on 75 in an 18 wheeler? You might be peeling yourself off the roof of your cab.
