A man involved in a three vehicle pile-up remains in critical condition.

45-year old Brent Rains of Monahans was airlifted to Medical Center Hospital after crashing into the back of a trailer, then another car.

The accident happened around seven a.m. Wednesday on U.S. Highway 18.

That's between Monahans and Kermit.

Officers say the driver of a pickup truck pulling a trailer, failed to pull all the way off the road when attempting to enter a cattle gate, leaving his trailer sticking out in the road.

Rains did not see the trailer.
