Authorities from the Lubbock Police Department were called out to the accident scene at around 10:00 p.m. The crash happened at the intersection of 82nd Street and Avenue U.

Preliminary reports indicate that a Toyota Camry was traveling along eastbound 82nd as a Chevrolet pickup was traveling along westbound 82nd.

As a result of the accident, one person from the Camry was ejected. That person, a 25-year-old woman, was critically injured and taken to University Medical Center. A 72-year-old, a 29-year-old, and an infant from the Camry were also taken to the hospital for treatment.
