A container leaking oil caused a pretty big mess on Highway 80 on Thursday afternoon.

The accident happened around 1 p.m.

A black truck, a Jeep and a motorcycle were all headed east on Highway 80.

That's when State Troopers say they hit a patch of oil from a container that fell out on the highway.

All three spun out and the Jeep ended up hitting the biker.

Three people were taken to the hospital, two were transported to Midland Memorial Hospital and the other was transported to Medical Center Hospital in Odessa.

There's no word yet on the extent of their injuries.
