Lubbock police say a man escaped serious injury Friday in a three-vehicle accident. Just before 2 p.m., police say a white truck towing a trailer pulled onto a Southeast Loop 289 access road. A Jeep on the access road swerved to miss the truck, but clipped the trailer. The Jeep then hit a red pickup truck. That pick-up rolled over, ejecting the driver. Police say that is likely what saved his life.
The driver of the truck was taken to the hospital with moderate injuries. The driver of the Jeep was also taken to the hospital.
