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.

    Denison, no it was not their fault but if their parents had not let them ride in the back of the truck in the first place they probably would not be hurt

    We have to value our children more. I see kids ALL the time riding without seatbelts, proper car seats, or restraints. I'm a nurse who has seen one too many kids hurt cause of neglect. If there's no room int he cab of a truck, stay home or take 2 vehicles. Hard lesson to learn, huh?

    If your going to post something please know what your talking about. Those children were hurt seriously and one of them is still fighting a LONG battle in children's hospital. They were young teens that made a bad choice and now are facing the consequences for that choice. They were victims of a horrible accident. Leave it at that!!! And for the record the wreck wasn't their fault someone pulled out in front of them.

    JC, Lynn said nothing about immigrations either and you are so wrong you can always go down hwy 75 and see hispanics riding in the back of a pickup truck because there is no room for them in the front of the truck.

    Lynn, there was no mention of the ethnicity or immigration status of the victims. I see plenty of Caucasians guilty of the same thing. Your comment served no useful purpose

    Lynn, you are so right. Too bad that the adults in this accident chose to have those kids in the back of the truck. Now they will be yelling because they were hurt. Parents need to wake up and realize the our children are our responsibility and we need to ensure their safety.

    you know back in the day we could ride in the back of the pick up I used to love to do that but we had more careful drivers at that time to and know one really speed

    What a stupid decision for the guardians of these poor children to make. No one should be in the back of a moving pickup! Let me guess, they were of hispanic origin, right? Because our laws don't apply to them...
