DENISON, TX -- A collision injures two people and shuts down Highway 75. It happened around 5 p.m. near Dave's Ski and Tackle.

Police say John Robinson Jr. of Durant was heading southbound on the Highway 75 frontage road when his car collided with an SUV that was going south on Highway 91.

Sandra Blevins and Johnny Meade, both of Denison, were taken from the scene in two different helicopters after the SUV went down the embankment and rolled onto its roof.

"One car rolled down the hill here, ended up upside down trapping the two occupants. Both occupants were extricated and flown to Dallas hospitals for evaluation," says Denison fire Battalion Chief Bruce Geilhausen.

"One car crushing up against another one it's pretty much the way it sounds, but it was bad. I went over and saw the one over the hill," says witness Jeremy Parkey.

Police say it's unclear whether the SUV took evasive measures to avoid the crash. The injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. Robinson was ticketed for failure to yield the right of way.

The southbound lanes were later re-opened.
