This all happened on TX 349 around 10:30 AM Tuesday. Both vehicles were headed southbound when the truck tried to turn into private land about 25 miles north of Midland. The red pickup wasn't able to slow down in time and smashed into the back of the trailer. Both occupants in the pickup were fine, but the driver of the tractor trailer was taken to Midland Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.
D.P.S. is investigating the incident and no charges have been filed.
