Fiery Explosion After Semis Collide

Miraculously, no one was killed after a fiery collision northwest of Lubbock on Saturday afternoon.

A milk truck was stopped at the intersection of Clovis Highway and Frankford Avenue just after 1:30 p.m. when a semi slammed into the back of it. The cab of the semi then burst into flames.

The driver of the milk truck grabbed a fire extinguisher and attempted to put out the fire while the driver of the semi, Gary Roark of New Mexico, escaped through a window.

Roark was taken to UMC with serious burns to his face, hands, arms, and stomach. The driver of the milk truck was not injured.
