SHERMAN, Texas (KTEN) — Sherman police now have new options whenever they need to clear an accident scene.

Currently, the city works with three wrecker services. A change approved unanimously by the City Council will let the city sign agreements with wrecker services within five miles of the city limits, and that offers some relief for the police department.

"They had informed us in that meeting that a lot of times they were waiting at accident scenes for wrecker services to get there," said Sherman City Councilman, Shawn Teamann. "That was one of the big prohibiting factors in being able to clear the accident."
