Seven Lubbock Fire Department units and 19 firefighters were on the scene.

A Department of Public Safety trooper got hit by a vehicle involved in a wreck. The trooper was taken to a local hospital.

The chain-reaction crashes apparently started with an accident involving an 18-wheeler east of Slaton Texas.
