Two automobile accidents occurred at almost exactly the same moment in Wise County Monday night.
At 5:30 p.m., two cars collided at the corner of North Trinity and Bishop Street in Decatur.
Margarita Carrillo of Decatur was driving south on North Trinity in a black Kia SUV when she drifted into the opposite lane while Brett Griffin of Springtown was headed north in a white Chevy Silverado.
The front left of both vehicles collided and caused a wreck. Carrillo was taken to Wise Regional Health System via ambulance, while Griffin’s passenger, Krista Griffin, was taken to Wise Regional via private vehicle.
The second collision, which also happened around 5:30 p.m., involved a tractor-trailer and another truck.
The tractor-trailer was headed west on Farm Road 1810 about halfway between Decatur and Chico when its driver, Juan Pablo Chavez of Decatur, began to experience a diabetic episode and swerved left of the center line.
This caused him to collide with the other truck, which was headed east, driven by Reed Alan Riewe of Comanche.
Both vehicles lost their front left axles and tires, causing each to swerve off onto opposite sides of the road.
No injuries were reported. Chavez was arrested at the scene after it was discovered there was a warrant out for his arrest.
