Major wreck critically injures two people

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - Interstate 27 southbound, between Amarillo and Canyon, remains shut down this afternoon as crews clear the scene of a major wreck.

Authorities say the driver of a pick-up towing a boat was experiencing some problems with his trailer hitch, and pulled over near McCormick to inspect the issue.

We're told both a semi-truck and a car clipped the boat from behind while it was pulled over, pinning the driver between the boat and the pick-up.

The crash caused the semi-truck to overturn into the median.

The driver of the semi-truck and the driver of the pick-up were taken to the hospital in critical condition.

The driver of the car was transported with minor injuries.
