MIDLAND - A large couch in the middle of Loop 250 caused a major traffic jam and sent two people to the hospital with minor injuries.

A woman driving a maroon Nissan Altima stopped when she spotted a beige couch left right in the middle of the road.

The woman got out of the car to pull the couch off to the side of the Loop, but a 2006 Mountainer didn't slow down in time, and slammed into the back of the Altima.

Two passengers left inside, the woman's mother and twelve year old daughter were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The driver of the Mountainer was handed a ticket.
