LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock Police are investigating an early morning accident that sent one person to the hospital. Police say the driver of an SUV lost control and hit a home in the 200 block of Redbud, around 2:30 a.m. Friday.

According to police, a 23-year-old male was driving an SUV south in the 200 block of Redbud Avenue. He lost control of the vehicle and hit a curb. The SUV then flipped onto its side and collided with a parked vehicle in a driveway.

The force caused both vehicles to crash into the home. When Lubbock Fire and Rescue arrived on the scene, both vehicles were on fire which caused the house to also catch fire.

The family inside the home heard the crash and got out of the home safely when they noticed the fire. As firefighters worked to put out the fire, an officer evacuated nearby neighbors from their homes for safety.

According to LFR one room of the home is heavily damaged by the fire and vehicles. There is also heavy smoke damage throughout the home.

The driver of the SUV was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Charges are pending for this investigation.
