DUI accident sends baby, two drivers to hospital


A DUI accident Saturday night involving three people sent one small child to the hospital.

Lubbock police said the accident happened just before midnight, when a west-bound truck was speeding onto the South Loop access road near the 6600 block of Utica Ave.

The driver could not control his speed and ended up rear ending an SUV with a baby in the back seat.

Both of the drivers and the baby were taken to UMC when police and EMS arrived on scene. 

The driver of the SUV and the baby suffered minor injuries. LPD also confirmed with us this morning that the driver of the truck was intoxicated at the time of the accident. He was sent to the hospital with moderate injuries.

No word yet if charges have been filed.
