LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - One person was injured after a Tuesday morning crash on South Loop 289 in between Quaker Avenue and Slide Road.

62-year-old Sandra Little was traveling westbound on the South Loop 289 access road in a Mitsubishi Outlander. She veered to the left, traveled up the median embankment and struck a Ford Fusion, driven by 64-year-old Billy Wiggins.
