Three people walked away from a Friday morning wreck in southwest Amarillo, but police said one was taken by police to a local hospital after they found him wandering away from the scene.
Sgt. Thomas Higgins said no serious injuries were reported after a gold Honda Accord struck a black late-model Dodge Charger at the intersection of South Bell Street and Fulton Drive at about 2:20 a.m. Both cars had significant front-end damage and debris from the collision littered the roadway.
"I've seen a lot worse (injuries) with a lot less damage," Higgins said. "They were lucky."
