DENISON, TX -- A multi-car accident Friday morning on Highway 75 just north of the FM 120 exit caused headaches for commuters heading both directions.

The accident involved three semis that became wedged together and several passenger vehicles. One pick-up was directly involved in the initial collision. Seven vehicles total were involved in the crash.

The driver of the passenger pick-up in the footage is David Ray Dickson of Cartwright, Oklahoma. He was flown to Baylor Medical Center in Dallas, where he is in critical condition.

Another driver was taken to Texoma Medical Center.

Northbound 75 traffic was rerouted to FM 120.

Accidents were also reported at the intersection of Highways 75 & 82 and at Highway 82 and Texoma Parkway.

    TO MS FROM DURANT. BLAME IT ON THE TRUCK DRIVR THATS WHAT EVEERYONE SAYS EVERYTIME A ACCIDENT IS REPORTED THAT INVOLVES A ''TRUCK''. HALF THE TIME IT IS A PICKUP THAT IS INVOLVED NOT A 'TRUCK' BUT YOU CAN BET YOUR AS- THAT IF YOU DON'T HAVE COFFEE IN THE STORES AND THE STORE RAN OUT GUESS WHO GETS BLAMED 'OH THE TRUCK IS LATE' NO ONE GIVES A DAM- ABOUT THE SAFETY OF THE TRUCK DRIVER JUST GET MY COFFEE TO THE STORE. SO BEFORE YOU SAY THAT TRUCKS CAUSED THE ACCIDENT GO RIDE WITH ONE AND WATCH HOW STUPID PEOPLE CUT THEM OFF. GIVE THESE PEOPLE SOME RESPECT. THESE 80,000 LBS. OF STEEL CAN'T STOP ON A DIME.

    It is really sad about this wreck but if this person that was in the truck had had their seat belt on they would not have gone through the windsheild

    We know one of the truck drivers involved in the accident. He said a car spun out and caused the yellow freight truck to swerve and caused the accident and when it all happened he had no where to go. He is at the hospital with his wife who went through the windshield and was injured and his infant son who thankfully was uninjured. The witness is correct, we see it all the time as truck drivers. Everyone is in a hurry because they left 15 minutes late and don't consider the consequences. I don't know how many times I have been cut off by a car who had to get around me before their exit. If they waited the extra two seconds they would not have to cut me off and risk their lives. You can't beat a truck or a train...Pay attention and be courteous...slow down!

    Well I was there and saw the whole thing. I was 2 cars behind the accident. It was not the TRUCKS that caused the accident it was the little blue car that flew past me, honking their horn and flipping me off for driving so slow that caused the pile up. You people all forget that truckers drive all over the world in different kinds of weather and they are used to this, it is the average person that are in a hurry and hardley ever drive in snow or ice that cause the wrecks. The DOT drivers were out putting sand on the road before this happened. Texoma slow down and take time to live. 6 people went to the hospital and one might die. Is it really that much to ask to slow down when it is slick or even rainey? I am sorry for the families that are involved and am thankful that mine is home safe.

    Where were the DOT trucks that were supposedly ready to go? Why do they wait for an accident to happen? I traveled the road this morning and very few bridges and overpasses were sanded.

    Anonymous, it doesn't matter how slow you go on icy roads, they are still super-slick! I wish my husband had the option to stay home on bad weather days like this!
