SLATON, TX (KCBD) - A two vehicle wreck occurred on HW84 in Slaton about 6:15 p.m. Saturday night.

Witnesses tell us us both vehicles were traveling westbound, toward Lubbock when a Ford Expedition almost hit a white car in the right lane.

Both vehicles were traveling in the same direction.

We are told the white car then tried to swerve to avoid the SUV and that's when it hit a pole.

The pole severely damaged the passenger side of the white car.

The woman driving the white car and three boys in the car were taken to the hospital by ambulance.

A small girl in the same vehicle was taken to UMC be Aerocare. She is reported to be in critical condition.

The passenger from the Expedition was also taken to the hospital.

The conditions of the other victims from this wreck are not known at this time.

The wreck effectively closed HW84 stranding some motorists for over an hour on the highway while the emergency crews were working the scene.

We will keep you updated as that information becomes available.
