Collision involving construction vehicle slows traffic on North Loop 289

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Traffic is moving along smoothly again, after a wreck on the North Loop 289 Monday morning.

A TxDOT vehicle with a large arrow warned of the danger ahead, and yet just before 11 a.m., a silver pickup collided with that truck.

The jaws of life were called in to help free the 31-year-old driver of that pickup. EMS took him to the hospital with minor injuries. No one else was hurt.

Traffic was diverted off the Loop, until crews were able to clear the wreckage.
