DPS officials are investigating a pair of collisions that occurred within hours of each other. Both traffic accidents took place at the same Shallowater intersection.
The first one happened around 10 o'clock Friday night at the intersection of U.S. Highway 84 and County Road 1294. Troopers say the teen driver of the car pulled out in front of a van. The two vehicles collided, and the van landed in the ditch. The two teens in the car and three adults in the van were all taken to Covenant with minor injuries.
The second collision happened there at 7:30 Friday morning. This time, it was a pickup that pulled out in front of a link-belt crane truck. Both drivers were taken to University Medical Center for treatment.
