Posted: Updated:

One man has been taken to UMC tonight following an accident in S.W. Lubbock County near the Hockley County line.

Just before 6 p.m. Wednesday, DPS troopers say 54-year-old Salvador Trevino, Jr. of Lubbock was driving west on US 62/82 near FM 1585 when he ran into the back of a tractor.

Trevino hit the blade on the back of the tractor, which was also driving west on the shoulder of the road.

The tractor driver, 42-year-old Abraham Gunther of Brownfield was not injured.

Officials say Trevino, Jr. has serious injuries.

Trevino, Jr. says he did not see the tractor because the sun was in his eyes.

As a result of the accident, traffic on 62/82 was backed up, which caused another accident down the road. One vehicle rear-ended another but there were no serious injuries.
