Deputy and Inmates Taken To Hospital After Wreck

A Van Zandt deputy and two inmates headed to the hospital after a weather related crash this morning just west of the Tyler airport.

The patrol car was headed to Palestine taking two inmates to a TDC unit. We're told the deputy was forced to swerve when he saw a maroon and gold truck heading straight toward him, driving in the wrong lane.

Investigators say the wet roads and some overcorrection caused the deputy to lose control of the car.

DPS troopers are looking for the driver of the truck.
