Semi accident shuts down US-75 in Denison

Posted:

DENISON -- The northbound lanes of US Highway 75 had to be shut down Wednesday because of an accident involving several vehicles.

Denison police say a car pulled in front of an 18-wheeler just south of Spur 503 exit. Police say the driver of the semi tried to avoid the car but lost control and ran into a retaining wall, badly damaging the cab.

The wreck caused a chain reaction. Police say another car ran into the back of a mini-van that braked to avoid the wreck involving the 18-wheeler. The damage appeared minor.

Police say the driver of the semi was taken to the hospital but should be okay.

No word on whether any citations were issued.
