OKLAHOMA CITY -- A child is in the hospital recovering after an accident early this morning. It happened just after 1:00 am when Oklahoma City police and rescue crews were called to southbound I-44 and S.W. 29th after the accident.

According to police, a woman driving southbound had a blow out and was driving slow trying to get to a gas station. That’s when a man driving southbound in a truck slammed into the back of the car.

A child in the back seat of the car had to be transported to a local hospital with possible back injuries.

Police believe the man driving the truck was texting on his phone at the time of the wreck and was cited for inattentive driving.
