A two vehicle accident severely injures one person Tuesday morning. The head-on collision between the 18-wheeler and sport utility vehicle also caused a spill of diesel fuel, which was quickly contained. The SUV was southbound on FM 1565 when it swerved into the northbound lanes in front of the tractor trailer, hitting the front of the vehicle and ending up in the ditch. The driver of the SUV was transported by helicopter to Parkland Hospital in Dallas. The man's identity and condition were not immediately available.
