Two motorcycle wrecks were reported Wednesday evening in Tarrant County, bringing to five the number of serious wrecks this week.

The first wreck Wednesday was about 5 p.m. near the intersection of U.S. 377 (Denton Highway) and Stephanie Drive in Haltom City.

The motorcycle wrecked when a car pulled onto the highway from Stephanie Drive, Cpl. Joe Hackfeld, a police spokesman, said. The collision was being investigated Wednesday night.

A helicopter ambulance took the motorcyclist to a Fort Worth hospital, said Fred Napp, Haltom City's deputy fire chief. The man's condition could not be learned late Wednesday.
