SHERMAN, Tex. -- A three-wheeler accident on Highway 56 Tuesday afternoon sent one person to the hospital. The accident happened on Highway 56, near FM 1417 around two o'clock.

Few details are known, but troopers say the three-wheeler broke down in the middle of Highway 56, so they hooked it up to an SUV to tow it out of the street. That was when the three-wheeler turned over, dragging the driver.

That driver was taken by medical helicopter. His condition is unknown at this time.

    Just to let everybody know. The driver was not riding in the middle of the road. The driver crossed the road to ride in the field on the other side. The ATV did not break down in the middle of the road, it broke down in the field on the opposite side of the driver's house. The driver then had a friend attach the 3-wheeler to the SUV to be pulled back to his house, just across the street. The 3-wheeler tipped backwards causing the driver to fall off backwards and hit his head on the cement. He is in the hospital in Dallas. He had a skull fracture and a brain bleed. He is stable at the moment, but unresponsive, and will probably have severe mental damage because of this accident. If and when he returns home, he has a rather large fine waiting for him, because while the paramedics were saving the man's life, the state troopers were trying to get some money for the county off of the incident, and although this accident is not news in any way, this station was interfering as well.

    What is wrong with America today is there are too many people who have been taught the correct usage of the English language, but instead choose to write in Gen-Dumb code.
