A morning wreck on expressway 83 sends at least two people to the hospital on Tuesday.
The accident happened on the expressway in Alamo and police say the driver of a red truck was driving on the far left lane and attempted to exit the expressway by cutting through three lanes of traffic. That caused him to hit one car and nearly striking another, but while trying to maintain control of the truck, he rolled over and a white Nissan hit him. Emergency crews took the driver of the Nissan, former news anchor Marcy Martinez, to the hospital and she was reported doing fine. Firefighters used the jaws of life to get the driver out of the truck and he was also transported to the hospital.
