A car traveling at a high rate of speed slammed into the back of a pick up on Highway 385 just outside of Odessa Thursday night.

The driver of the black Ford Focus is in the hospital in stable condition.

Troopers say the driver of the pick up truck slowed down to make a left turn, and that's when she hit the truck from behind.

The driver of the truck walked away from the accident.

The woman driving the car was taken to Medical Center.

Troopers tell us she will most likely receive a ticket for failure to control speed.
