An accident on Highway 31 near Farm to Market 757 slowed traffic on Thursday morning.

Department of Public Safety troopers say two vehicles were involved in the accident, which happened around 9:05 a.m. Troopers say a blue minivan shot across the road and a silver car was unable to avoid it. The van overturned and the Jackson Heights Volunteer Fire Department had to cut the roof off of it to get the driver and passenger out. Both were then transported to a Tyler hospital with cuts and bruises.

The driver of the car refused treatment. 

Traffic is getting by on one side of the road and the wreck should be cleared by 10 a.m.

Multiple agencies responded to the scene, including several fire departments.
