HARROLD, TX (RNN Texoma) -

A car crash near the Harrold Truck Stop on U.S. 287 sent one person to the hospital Saturday. 

DPS Trooper Dan Buesing said around 7 p.m. a small pickup truck driven by a Vernon man was driving northbound on U.S. 287. At the same time, an 18-wheeler driven by a man from British Columbia was crossing the highway into the truck stop. That's when the pickup truck collided with the back wheels of the 18-wheeler.

He said the pickup driver was airlifted to United Regional with non-life threatening injuries. The person in the semi-truck is okay. The northbound lanes of 287 were closed for a while.

The crash is still under investigation and no charges are being filed at this time.
