Several Traffic Collision Keep Authorities Busy Tuesday Night

Lubbock Police and County authorities had a busy Tuesday night, responding to several traffic collisions.

A gray truck struck a tree at 70th and Albany. One witnesses says the driver missed hitting her by feet.

"There was an explosion I turned around, there was wood flying through the air. This trailer was shaking, and a truck came speeding right past me, as I ran toward my house,"she says.

Police arrested the man on the scene, and are looking into whether alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash.

Two people are at UMC with serious injuries, after a traffic collision at the intersection County Road 6500 and North County Road 3200. DPS says a green Pontiac Sunfire failed to yield the right of way and was t-boned by a truck. Aerocare flew two people from the Sunfire to UMC with serious injuries. No one in the truck was injured. The driver of the Sunfire was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.

Finally, Lubbock Police say a car ran a four-way stop sign and collided with a van in the 2400 Block of Louisville. The impact of the collision sent one vehicle into a house, and the other into a tree. Luckily, no one was seriously injured in this crash.
