The Camry acted as a wedge, flipping the Penske truck over on its side and blocking all lanes of traffic on Taylor Street.

The 74-year-old female passenger of the Camry was extricated from the wreckage. She, along with the 50-year-old driver of the Camry and the 29-year-old male driver of the Penske truck, was transported to the hospital for treatment.

Police said the injuries were not life-threatening.

The occupants in the Camry are Amarillo residents but the driver of the Penske truck, from Virginia Beach, Va., was traveling through town.

The streets in the area remained closed while police investigate the accident. Police said alcohol was not a factor.
