5 Vehicle Accident, 1 Injury

Five vehicles involved in a late Tuesday night accident in Wichita Falls left one car a total loss and sent one person to United Regional Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Wichita Falls Police Sergeant Gregory Lillis told Newschannel 6 the accident happened just before 10:30 Tuesday night on the 5500 block of I-44 under Missile Road.

Sergeant Lillis said the driver of the first car involved in the accident, a black Chevy, got distracted and hit a concrete barrier. The car spun out of control and stopped in the street without its lights on.

The second car hit the Chevy and also spun out. The driver of what became the third car involved in the accident pulled his car over, got out of the vehicle, and tried to help. A fourth car then came on the scene. It hit the first car, then hit the third car that was parked off to the side of the road. Finally, Sergeant Lillis said a van came upon the scene and hit the first car for the third time.

The driver of the second car involved was taken to United Regional with non-life threatening injuries.

No charges were filed. Police did not issue any of the drivers citations at the scene of the accident.
