LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Accident Investigation Team of the Lubbock Police Department is investigating a crash near South Loop 289 and University Avenue that sent two people to the hospital.

Officers responded to the crash in the 7000 block of University Avenue and South Loop 289 where a pickup truck crashed into another pick up around 1:00 pm.

Through their initial investigation, officers say it appears 46-year-old Clinton Stephenson struck a light pole near the 6600 block of I-27. He continued driving with two flat tires on the South Loop 289 westbound frontage road. It appears Stephenson was in the right hand turn lane when he approached the intersection, but he continued to travel straight. His pickup continued through the median and struck another pickup with a 27-year-old driver, Timothy Stephens.

Stephenson's pickup stopped in the bushes near a Valero gas station.

Both men were taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Stephenson's injuries were then upgraded to serious, but non-life threatening.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.

    The Mennonite community is thriving in Seminole, since coming here in the late 1970s. However, it wasn't without a lot of hardship, and a lot of help.
