Lubbock Drivers Lose Control on Slick Streets

The rain caused problems for Lubbock drivers on Thursday. Police say that 30-year-old Steven Shipley hydroplaned in his car hitting a car in front of him. The accident occured at South Loop 289 and 69th St. Dr. Shipley got out of his car and that's when police say a woman in a Monte Carlo ran into him. She lost control and hit an SUV in the parking lot of McGavock Nissan.

EMS took Shipley to UMC where he was treated and released. No one else was injured.
