Wreck causes detour on 6th Street ramp

WICHITA FALLS, TX (TNN) - A wreck at the end of the 6th Street ramp in Wichita Falls on Wednesday afternoon caused traffic to be diverted.

Just after lunch a car was coming off the ramp and attempted to make a left turn onto Austin when it collided with another vehicle already traveling along 6th Street, according to officers on the scene.

The accident was minor and officers said only one person went to the hospital to be checked out as a precaution. Traffic was diverted on the south side of Austin Street while crews worked to clear the scene.

No one was seriously hurt and traffic was reopened later that afternoon. The driver coming off the ramp is not from the area and was unfamiliar with traffic flow, according to officers on the scene.
