UPDATE

2 injured in head-on collision


Two people were taken to hospitals following a two-vehicle accident Friday morning just before 8 on Texas 114 at County Road 4599 west of Boyd. Department of Public Safety Trooper Adolfo Patterson said Valerie Carrillo, 19, of Fort Worth was eastbound on Texas 114 in an SUV when she came over a hill and found herself behind a vehicle that had pulled out of the county road and hadn’t yet sped up to the traffic flow. Patterson said when Carrillo realized the vehicle was still moving slow, she slammed on her brakes and turned into the westbound lanes since a guardrail made going right impossible. Her vehicle struck a westbound vehicle nearly head-on, causing Carrillo’s vehicle to roll onto its side and the westbound car to leave the roadway into thick brush. The driver of the car, Nina Lamance, 38, of Boyd was flown to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. Carrillo was transported by ground ambulance to Wise Regional Health System in Decatur.
