Head-on collision caused by wrong-way driver

Five men were transported by ambulance to area hospitals following a violent head-on collision on Farm Road 51 near County Road 2320 between Decatur and Slidell Saturday night.

21-year-old Dylan Lamoreaux of Weatherford and an unknown male passenger were taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth with serious injuries.

The Wise County Messenger says 69-year-old Guy Matlock, of Weatherford; his son, 33-year-old Randall Matlock, of Weatherford; and 25-year-old Jacob Byrd, of Azle were taken to Wise Regional Health System in Decatur. They were said to be in stable condition.

Officers say Lamoreaux was driving in the wrong lane of 51, causing the accident.

Matlock was driving a white Saturn SUV northbound on FM 51 shortly before 9:30 p.m. when it was struck by the southbound Kia passenger car driven by Lamoreaux in the northbound lane.
