SHERMAN, Tex. -- Several children and adults woke up in the hospital Monday morning after a late night car accident in Sherman on Sunday.

The accident happened in west Sherman on Friendship Road at Highway 56.

Authorities say a car northbound on Friendship Road failed to yield to a truck traveling west on Highway 56.

Several minors in the bed of the truck were injured and flown by helicopter to Children's Medical and Parkland Hospitals in Dallas.

Grayson County Sheriff's deputy Sandy Bryant has advice for those who choose to ride in the back of pickups.

"You don't need to be riding in the bed of a pickup truck on a major highway, or any highway."

Several adults were taken to Wilson N. Jones Hospital as a precaution.

No word on the condition of the children.
