Pair of Wrecks on I-27

A tire blow out on north I-27 set the stage for a pair of wrecks Wednesday afternoon.

According to a DPS Trooper, it happened just before 2pm, when one vehicle suffered a blow out, careened out of control, and then struck a guard rail. One woman was taken to the hospital after fainting at the scene.

Moments later, as Lubbock Police Officers were directing traffic through the accident site, an 18-wheeler sideswiped a police cruiser. The officer was not in his car at the time and the driver of the semi was not hurt. However, the cruiser was towed from the scene.
