A Boyd man was injured in a wreck late Thursday night in south Wise County.
Christian Smith, 21, was flown to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth following a one-car rollover on County Road 4698 about a mile east of Farm Road 51 in southern Wise County.
Department of Public Safety Trooper Carson Bening said Smith was westbound on the narrow county road around 10:30 when he swerved to avoid hitting a deer in the roadway. His vehicle rolled at least once before landing upright.
CareFlite was called to transport Smith to the hospital.
Another accident was reported at nearly the same time on U.S. 81/287 near County Road 4421.
The call originally was reported as a driver of a passenger car going southbound in the northbound lane of U.S. 81/287. The car driver hit an sports utility vehicle, but the SUV driver was not injured.
The car went off the road and the driver attempted to flee officers on foot, but he was detained by officers and later taken to Wise Regional Health System with minor injuries.
His name and any charges were not available as of press time Friday.
