Posted: Updated:

A driver is sent to the hospital after a head-on crash along I-37 right past the Labonte Park exit.  Police say one of the trucks was going the wrong way on I-37 when it collided with another pickup truck.  The driver that caused the accident was taking to the hospital for a blood draw.  Police suspect he was intoxicated.  Meanwhile, the driver of the truck that was hit was taken to the hospital with a neck and spine injury.  Police say there wasn't much that driver could have done to get out of the path of the oncoming truck.  The accident caused quite the traffic tied up.  Sections of I-37 were shut down for about an hour and a half as emergency responders cleared the scene.
