What started out as a car accident turned into a drug bust along I-27. Lubbock police were called to the 4800 block of North I-27 around 11:30 Wednesday night. They found a Volvo inside a bar ditch.
Police believe the driver veered off the frontage road, slid down the embankment, jumped a retaining wall and landed in the ditch. EMS took the driver to University Medical Center for moderate injuries. Then police took the driver to jail. That's because they found marijuana in the floorboard of the car.
A K-9 unit sensed the smell of drugs in the trunk as well, so police believe the car was used to deliver drugs.
