GILMER — At least two people were ejected in two separate car wrecks in Upshur County on Thursday afternoon. Officials in Upshur County and the City of Gilmer were dispatched to the first wreck at 3:48 p.m. at the intersection of FM 2685 and Evergreen Rd., just south of Gilmer. Gilmer Fire officials tell KETK they arrived on scene in just enough time to assist with a landing zone for an emergency helicopter in the middle of FM 2685, and then were immediately called to another ejection accident within the city limits of Gilmer. That call came in at 4:09, only 20 minutes after the first wreck. It was on Cherokee Trace in Gilmer. At least one person was ejected in this wreck, but received minor injuries. The status of the people involved in the initial wreck on FM 2685 has not yet been released.
