Two men were injured in a one-vehicle rollover south of Decatur early Sunday morning. Both were transported to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth — one by ground ambulance, the other by helicopter.

The driver, Osei Ageyman Leonard, 49, of Grand Prairie was flown due to a crushed foot and facial injuries. He was trapped inside the car and had to be extricated out.

His passenger, Meaxwell Brefo, 32, of Arlington was transported by ground ambulance.

Investigators believe the car was northbound on U.S. 81/287 when, for unknown reasons, it left the roadway, near Farm Road 2264. The car rolled several times before coming to a rest on the driver’s side in the median.

Decatur Fire Department, Decatur police officers, Wise County medics and a State Trooper responded to the accident, which was called in just after midnight.

There were no other vehicles involved.
