A wreck between a pair of pickup trucks this morning on U.S. 82 resulted in minor injuries to one driver.

The accident occurred just after 8 a.m. when a Toyota truck traveling westbound on U.S. 82 came to a stop while waiting to turn left onto Karr Ranch Road.

The Toyota was struck from behind by a Ford company pickup, also heading west on 82.

The Eddy County Sheriff’s Office reports the driver of the Toyota was transported by ambulance to Artesia General Hospital with abrasions.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
