High winds cause seven-car pile-up near Stratford

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - High winds and blowing dust led to zero-visibility on Highway 287 south of Stratford Saturday afternoon where a multiple-car pile-up sent seven people to the hospital.

Stratford police said because of the zero visibility, five cars and two tractor-trailors wrecked into each other about 2:00 Saturday afternoon.

Fourteen people were involved and seven of them were sent to the hospital.

Only one was in serious condition, the six others all suffered minor injuries.

The highway was closed for several hours, but has since been cleared and is now back open.
