287 vehicle accident

Amarillo, TX - A major accident occurred on 287 just outside of Amarillo that backed up traffic for close to an hour.

It happened after 9pm Saturday. Potter County Deputies report that a woman and two children were in the right lane in a car pulling a U-haul trailer and wanted to exit on the left.

Deputies say they switched lanes and didn't see a truck in their blind spot. The two vehicles collided and the trailer tipped over, and both vehicles ended up in the ditch. All four people were taken to the hospital.
