TYLER — Tyler Police tell KFXK two people have been sent to the hospital following a rollover accident on Loop 323 in Tyler.

The accident happened around 3:00 p.m. on Thursday.

Police say a couple in a Toyota pick-up truck were merging onto Loop 323 from the merge lane.

A semi-truck was travelling in the center lane on the loop at the time. When the truck merged, it clipped the back end of the 18-wheeler and sent them rolling.

The people in the truck were not pinned, but were sent to the hospital in "serious, but not life threatening condition".

Northbound traffic on Loop has been reduced to one lane while the wreck is cleared.

Tyler Police tell KFXK there is a rollover on the 2500 block of WSW Loop 323 in Tyler.

No word yet of any injuries that may be involved, but there are reports of at least on person pinned in.

KFXK has a crew en route, and will provide more information as it comes in.
