Amarillo, TX – 7 Injured in Multi-Vehicle Crash on I-27
Amarillo, TX (April 7, 2019) On the morning of April 7th, a serious multi-vehicle crash happened at the overpass on I-27 and 34th. According to the reports, a 21-year-old woman was in her Ford Taurus, which was stopped in the left lane because of a flat tire. The Ford got rear-ended by a Hyundai Santa Fe, which was operated by a 28-year-old woman. The impact of the crashed caused the Hyundai to spin out into the roadway and crash head-on with a Chevrolet Silverado, which was driven by a 24-year-old woman.
When emergency crews arrived at the crash site in the 3300 block of South I-27, they found a 2-month-old baby in the Taurus suffering from life-threatening injuries. They transported the baby to a nearby hospital for treatment. Another child and a 19-year-old male who were also both in the Taurus were also transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. The occupants of the Santa Fe, which included one driver and three children, were all taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
The police shut down the southbound lanes as they investigated and cleared the accident.
Our thoughts are with everyone who sustained injuries in this terrible accident and their families. We hope all seven injured victims fully recover from their injuries.
