Crash causes severe injury, traffic backups

By Christy Moreland - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - One person suffered critical injuries in a three-vehicle crash that backed up traffic for several miles along the Slaton Highway Sunday evening.  Just after 6:00 pm, two S-U-V's and a car collided on U.S. 84 just Southeast of South Loop 289. 

The extent of the crash site forced police to block off traffic for more than an hour in the westbound lanes, backing up drivers for several miles.  At least two people were taken to Lubbock hospitals, one with critical injuries.  Police are still investigating what caused the accident.
