Two people were injured in a multiple-vehicle wreck Thursday morning on U.S. 81/287 between Alvord and Decatur. Texas Department of Public Safety spokesperson Sgt. Ricky Hunter said preliminary investigation indicates a 2015 Dodge Charger and a Chevrolet Corvette were traveling south on U.S. 81/287 around 8:30 Thursday morning when the Charger crashed into a 2010 Chevrolet Avalanche and then into a trailer being towed by a Ford Pickup. The wreck happened just south of the intersection with County Road 1280 and resulted in a complete shut down of both lanes of traffic. The driver of the Charger fled the scene and has not been located, Hunter said. The driver of the Avalanche, Harry Betts, 78, and a passenger, Chase Martin, 33, were both transported to a local hospital with undisclosed injuries. The driver of the Ford was not injured. The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
