One person airlifted from t-bone crash in Watauga

Emergency responders from Watauga FD/EMS, PD, and MedStar EMS all responded to a major accident along Denton Highway (377) just south of Watauga Road earlier this morning.

Reports indicate a vehicle was pulling out of a vape store parking lot in the 6200 block of Denton Highway when it was t-boned by another vehicle. One person was trapped inside one of the vehicles and had to be extricated by firefighters.

CareFlite responded to the scene and landed on Denton Highway near the crash site. One person was airlifted to Harris Methodist Fort Worth via CareFlite. MedStar transported one patient by ground to Harris as well.

The roadway was closed, but has been reopened at this time.
