A vehicle hydroplaned off U.S. 81/287 and struck a tree Friday afternoon north of Alvord, according to Department of Public Safety spokesman Richard Hunter.

Hunter said the driver, identified as 21-year-old Kassidi Patterson, of Oklahoma, was traveling northbound in an Infiniti passenger car at an unsafe speed for the wet, rainy road conditions. The preliminary investigation indicated Patterson left the roadway and traveled into the center median before sliding sideways into the tree.

Patterson was transported to Wise Health System with unknown injuries.
