Two people were taken to a hospital Monday morning following a single-vehicle wreck on U.S. 380 just east of Decatur. Department of Public Safety Trooper Greg Reyero said a pickup driven by Les Hargis, 74, of Borger was westbound when he apparently drove through a curve in the road, striking a light pole near the Shell station. He and his wife, Deanna, 77, were both taken to a hospital by ground ambulance.
