A Decatur man was transported to Wise Regional Health System in Decatur then flown to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth for injuries sustained in a one-vehicle accident Monday night.
The man, whose name was not available at the scene, was the driver of a silver pickup, the only vehicle involved in the wreck, which was reported just after 10 p.m.
Investigators believe he had taken the exit off of U.S. 287 near McDonald’s in Decatur and turned left onto Washburn Street. It appears he veered to the right, jumped the curb and slammed into the concrete wall underneath the 287 overpass.
The extent of his injuries were not known, but investigators believe a medical issue was a factor in the wreck.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
