Officers say two people were injured in a two vehicle auto accident that occurred on Highway 63, shortly after 7:00 on Wednesday morning, just east of Jasper.

Sergeant Shana Clark of the Texas Department of Public Safety said the crash occurred as a 1999 Freightliner was traveling east. She said a 2007 Dodge Ram pickup truck was traveling north onĀ  County Road 273 and apparently turned out onto the highway in the path of the Freightliner.

The Freightliner turned over in the highway partially blocking the road.

Clark said the driver of the Freightliner, 54 year old Turner Hartsfield and the driver of the Dodge Johnnie Wagstaff, 82, both of Jasper, were taken by ambulance to Christus Jasper Memorial Hospital, where they were at last word still undergoing treatment.
