UPDATE FROM TRAFFIC ACCIDENT THIS MORNING.
KLVT News learned late this afternoon that what was originally thought to be a one vehicle accident, actually according to witnesses involved a Ford Focus driven by Erlinda Trinidad of Sundown and the semi-truck. Witnesses told DPS troopers that the Ford Focus was turning north on to 385 off of Hwy 301 and did not see the semi resulting in the collision and the ultimate roll-over of the semi-truck. DPS reported that Trinidad was taken to Covenent Hospital in Lubbock and was in surgery this afternoon. The driver of the truck Burke Hefen of Utah suffered minor injuries and was transported to Covenent Hospital in Lubbock as well.
Emergency Crews from Levelland and Sundown responded to the accident on South Highway 385 at just before 9am this morning. Traffic was diverted off of highway 385 and in many cases traffic was stopped on 385 in both directions.
