SHERMAN, TEXAS -- An accident shut down Highway 75 in Sherman this afternoon.
Sgt. D.M. Hampton with Sherman police says a car did not yield to oncoming traffic when trying to merge onto the highway between Washington and Travis.
That caused another car, in the right lane of the highway, to quickly hit the brakes, causing a motorcycle to rear-end it.
The motorcycle driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The accident shut down traffic for about 45 minutes.
