Semi-Truck Accident Blocks Off Lubbock Traffic for Hours

On Wednesday, the Department of Public Safety rerouted traffic for more than five hours, after an accident left a messy spill. Two semi-trucks collided just after 1 p.m., on Interstate 27 between Regis and County Road 1294.

According to DPS reports, a city truck driver pulled off to the shoulder after he noticed his trailer had lost it's load. Another semi-truck traveling behind him slipped on the mess, and ran into the back of the parked truck. EMS took the driver of the city vehicle, 48-year-old Clarence Dudley Allen to Covenant with unknown injuries. The driver of the other vehicle sustained no injuries.

DPS is still cleaning up the mess, which means a mile stretch of I-27 is closed.
