Major Accident Shuts Down Kell Freeway

Two people are in the hospital as crews worked for hours to clean up a huge mess. A series of wrecks shut down both lanes of the Kell Freeway near Taft. Just after 6:00pm Monday, the first wreck happened. Wichita Falls Police tell us a gray car was heading east when it crossed over the center median. That car collided with a yellow Corvette. The entire freeway was littered with debris. The driver of the gray car was taken to the hospital. Just moments after that, a driver going east was involved in another wreck. Officers say that could have been caused by a distracted looking at the first wreck. A woman was taken to the hospital because of that accident, as well. Sergeant John Spragins with the Wichita Falls Police says there are things to consider when driving near an accident scene. "We ask anyone who's driving going past these accidents, to pay attention to their driving," said Sergeant Spragins. " We've got a lot of emergency vehicles out here, a lot of personnel we don't want the firemen, policemen or ambulance people injured." One person was taken to the hospital by ambulance. No word tonight on their condition at this time. Traffic was shut down for hours in both directions of the freeway.
