Two teenagers were injured when their vehicle flipped on Farm Road 2264, south of Decatur, Wednesday afternoon.
Timothy Paul Dennis, 19, and his passenger, Justice Marie Sampson, 18, were traveling east on FM 2264, near Long Branch Road, at about 1:30 p.m. when he swerved to the right to avoid a rock in the road.
He then overcorrected and pulled the car to the left, causing it to flip and roll off the side of the road into a ditch.
Dennis suffered neck injuries, and Sampson suffered back and spinal injuries. Both were taken to Wise Regional Health System in Decatur.
Department of Public Safety Trooper Patrick Alonzo said that speed may have been a factor, but the driver’s overcorrection was the main cause of the wreck.
