MIDLAND - A female truck driver was arrested following an intoxication investigation Thursday afternoon at the scene of a two-car collision at Midkiff Road and Sycamore Avenue, according to Midland Police.
Her vehicle was traveling westbound when she neglected a stop sign and crashed into a sedan driving south.
"The impact of the collision sent the two vehicles in opposite directions," said Sgt. B. Alexander.
"The white Dodger pick-up [truck] then struck a house."
Police are still searching for the male passenger of the truck.
The five people in the sedan, declared a total loss at the scene of the accident, are believed to be grandparents and their three grandchildren on their way to Thanksgiving dinner.
According to officials, at least one was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
