LUBBOCK, Texas -

Two people were injured in a crash involving a car and a propane tanker a few miles south of Lubbock Tuesday morning. It also tied traffic up on U.S. 87 for much of the day.

According to the DPS, Sicily Payne, 41, of Lubbock, didn't yield the right-of-way to a northbound tanker. She was driving a car eastbound on FM 41. The crash overturned both vehicles in the median.

Payne is fighting critical injuries. The truck driver, James Winford, 71, of Lamesa, was talking with first responders as he was taken to a Lubbock hospital. 

The Lubbock Fire Rescue HAZMAT team responded. It determined the propane tank is damaged but is not leaking.
