Troopers respond to 2 single-vehicle wrecks near Weatherford

A single-vehicle wreck snarled traffic early Thursday where two rural highways merge south of Weatherford, but then a second wreck happened about 20 minutes later near the same location, according to reports.

The first accident happened at 5:04 a.m. near the merge of Farm Road 51, also called the Granbury Highway, and Texas 171, which is also known as the Cleburne Highway, said a dispatcher for the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Another single-vehicle wreck happened at 5:27 a.m. in that area, the dispatcher said.

One person was taken to Weatherford Regional Medical Center, a LifeCare Ambulance spokeswoman said, but no other information was immediately available Thursday.
