At least two people are hospitalized following a pair of overnight accidents in Lubbock.
Witnesses say a driver took a corner too fast, and drove straight up the guy wire of a telephone pole. It happened just after midnight, at 23rd and Avenue O. With the car obviously stuck, the driver then took off on foot. Police located the driver and a passenger later. Both were treated for minor injuries.
Minutes later, another accident in south Lubbock injured two people. Police say this time, a gold Pontiac was backing out of a driveway in the 1600 Block of 69th, when it was struck by a gray Hyundai. Witnesses say the Hyundai was driving without its headlights. Its driver was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving.
