W.F. Accident Causes Traffic Diversion

A Wichita Falls Police sergeant told Newschannel 6 crews on the scene that around 12:30 p.m. Sunday, a blue Hummer driving on Southwest Parkway was attempting to take a left turn onto Fairway Boulevard.

Initial reports indicate the driver of the Hummer took a protected turn on a clear green instead of waiting for the protected left turn arrow, sending the vehicle into a white GMC Acadia going South on Southwest Pkwy.

The two vehicles collided.

The collision then caused the Hummer to smash into the door of a blue Ford Windstar.

Officials told Newschannel 6 four children were involved in the accident. Three of them were taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure.

Wichita Falls Police told us the children's injuries do not appear to be severe.

Traffic heading West on Southwest Parkway was diverted through the Alon gas station/7-11 parking lot, as ambulance workers, Wichita Falls Fire crews, and numerous Wichita Falls Police officers worked to clear the scene.

All traffic diversions were clear as of Monday morning.

    Since the 1950's the Wichita County Mounted Patrol Rodeo brought in crowds from all across Texoma. After unexpectedly shutting down in 2011 due to financial issues it is coming back and better than ever. Former Steer Wrestling World Champion Mickey Gee told me there is nothing better than a Texas rodeo. The Wichita county native spent many years attending the WCMP Rodeo with his father and knew when the gates closed in 2011 he had to do something to bring it back.
