SHERMAN, TX -- A senior citizen is recovering after police say an out-of-control car crashed into his truck.

The accident happened around 10 a.m. on Monday on Highway 75. Police say a 21-year-old woman was headed north on the frontage road near F.M. 1417, when her car suddenly ran across a grassy strip and onto the highway, striking a pickup truck and hitting the median.

"Indications were initially that one vehicle did roll over, and it appeared that one vehicle may have rolled on its side and then back down on all four wheels," says Sherman fire Battalion Chief Tom Brown.

The 70-year-old pickup driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. According to Sherman police Sgt. D.M. Hampton, the driver of the car reported having a mechanical problem with her steering. The northbound side of the highway was shut down for about an hour and traffic was diverted onto the frontage road at the F.M. 1417 exit.
