Original Release:

UPDATE:
On 4-8-14, at 9:51 PM, officers responded to a three car accident at the intersection of Amarillo Blvd and N. Pierce. A white Honda four-door with three occupants was eastbound on Amarillo Boulevard crossing Pierce when a red Peterbuilt truck tractor pulling a load of hay entered the intersection southbound and struck the Honda. The truck’s initial impact was on the Honda’s left front, but the vehicle sustained heavy damage at several points as it spun around and the truck continued south. One occupant was reported ejected as the car came to rest. The truck then veered to the east, crossed the curb, and struck an unknown type vehicle parked on the west side of the McDonald’s at 400 Amarillo Boulevard East. The impact pushed the vehicle through the west wall of the building, and the truck also entered the building and rolled over on its side, coming to rest on top of the car. The female driver in the car that was pushed into the building was removed from her car and taken to the hospital. Damage to the building is extensive. At the time of this release, AFD firefighters are able to speak to the truck driver, and are in the process of extricating him. The extent of his injuries is not known. Two people from the white Honda were taken to the hospital, but did not appear to have serious injuries. There are some initial reports that two McDonalds employees were also transported to the hospital by private car or by ambulance, but officers are still investigating at the scene and have not attained a full list of those at the hospital. At this point, responders are not aware of any life threatening injuries to anyone involved. The area of Amarillo Boulevard and Pierce will remain blocked off for several hours while the driver, truck and other vehicle are removed from the building. APD Traffic Investigations is on the scene, no citations have been issued.
