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.
