LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A three vehicle accident resulted in a rollover at 50th Street and West Loop 289 Tuesday. Police say the driver of an Lubbock ISD maintenance truck appeared to run a red light. He then hit a white truck, causing it to flip over and land on top of a gray Ford Taurus in front of Cash America Pawn.

According to LISD, the accident involved a maintenance contractor from Sodexo, not an school district employee.

The driver of the Taurus was trapped in the car and first responders had to use the Jaws of Life. The driver was then transported to Covenant Hospital with serious injuries.

Police also say the driver of the white truck was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The driver of the maintenance truck suffered no injuries.

No charges have been filed and police are still investigating the accident.
