Two hurt in DeWitt County crash

Two people were taken to a Victoria hospital Wednesday morning after a wreck on U.S Highway 183 at Farm-to-Market Road 237 in DeWitt County.

A 1989 Mitsubishi pickup driven by Blake Palmer, 23, of Victoria, was traveling west about 7 a.m. on the farm road when it pulled onto U.S. Highway 183 and was struck by a 2003 Freightliner tractor-trailer, said Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Trooper Gerald Bryant.

The tractor-trailer, which was headed north on the highway, was driven by Eduardo Cassiano, 25, of Laredo.

Both men were taken by Cuero Emergency Medical Services ambulance to Citizens Medical Center. Both men were treated and released, said a hospital spokeswoman.

DPS Trooper Don Plunkett is investigating the crash.
