Infant Critically Injured in Slaton Highway Rollover

Three people were hospitalized Tuesday, after a collision near Slaton. It happened around 7:40 a.m. Tuesday, at the intersection of U.S. 84 and F.M. 835.

According to DPS, Bambi Williams, 34, of Slaton, sat in the center median, waiting to turn her Mitsubishi into eastbound traffic.

"The Buick was in the right lane, moved over to the left to do some passing of the vehicles turning into Wayne's liquor store," said Corporal John Gonzalez. "(The Buick) apparently struck the Mitsubishi that cut into the path of the vehicle."

Both vehicles landed in the center median, with the Mitsubishi rolled over on its top. Two children, seated in the backseat, were hurt. Aerocare flew Connor Hodges, 14 months, to Covenant Medical Center. He was listed in critical condition Tuesday afternoon. Ashtyn Hodges, 5, was treated and released.

Williams and a front seat passenger, K'Leigh Hernandez, 15, were not injured.

EMS took the driver of the Buick, Christian Shute, 47, of Lubbock, to University Medical Center. He has since been treated and released.

Gonzalez says everyone in both cars was wearing a seat belt. However, Williams will receive a citation for failure to yield the right of way.
