ABERNATHY, TX (KCBD) -

Wet roads are being blamed for a serious wreck that happened around 4:15 p.m. just north of Abernathy on I-27.

DPS says a Ford Focus traveling southbound on I-27 hydroplaned and lost control crossing the center median.

The Ford continued into the southbound lanes, colliding with a semi tractor trailer traveling northbound.

The driver of the semi took evasive action, avoiding a head on collision but the Ford Focus struck the rear axles of the trailer.

The driver of the Ford Focus, Caitlyn Mang, 22, of Lubbock was transported by AeroCare with severe injuries.

The truck driver was not injured.

The crash is still under investigation.

DPS wants to remind motorists to please slow down during inclement weather, including rain, snow, and any other circumstances that could be lead to hazardous driving conditions.
