Officers with the Lubbock Police Department's Accident Investigation Unit are investigating an early morning crash that sent one male to the hospital with serious injuries.

Just after 4 a.m. on Sunday, officers responded to the area of 4th Street and Toledo Avenue in reference to a traffic collision. Officers located two vehicles involved in a crash.

Preliminary information indicates a Jeep Patriot was traveling northbound on Toledo Avenue after turning off of 4th Street. It appears the SUV then collided into the back of a Toyota Camry that was also on Toledo Avenue.

The driver of the car, a 66-year-old male, was transported to Covenant Medical Center with serious injuries. The driver of the SUV, 20-year-old Evan Simmons, was arrested and charged with intoxication assault and fraudulent use or possession of identifying information.

This case remains under investigation by the Accident Investigation Unit.
