4 car accident on Southwest Freeway sends 5 people to hospital

Channel 11 News has reported a four vehicle pileup on Sunday April 17, 2011 that sent five people to the hospital. Police said a vehicle driving on the southwest freeway near Bissonnet rear-ended another vehicle around 2:15AM. A pickup truck then smashed into the rear of another vehicle that had slowed down for the original collision. Apparently a man jumped out of one of the vehicle and ran away, and apparently not realizing he was on an overpass hopped the wall and fell to the concrete below. The man who ran and four others were transported to the hospital.
