DPS Troopers tell NewsWest 9, a 2000 Toyota 4-Door vehicle was turning left in front of a big rig traveling eastbound on FM 1450.

That's when the big rig hit the Toyota and also hit a 2012 GMC SUV.

The driver of the Toyota, 44-year-old J. Refugio Garcia of Midland, was taken to Medical Center Hospital with incapacitating injuries.

The driver of the big rig, 60-year-old Harvey John Montoya, of Pecos, Texas and the driver of the GMC SUV, 58-year-old Tammie Ingram Duggan of Odessa, were taken to Pecos County Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

We're told the big rig was transporting petroleum crude oil. However, none of the crude oil was exposed due to the accident.
