MIDLAND, TX — Three people were sent to a hospital Sunday after a two-vehicle wreck caused one car to crash into a Burger King in Midland, reports NewsWest9.

The collision occurred at the intersection of Kansas Street and Andrews Highway (Texas State Highway 158) on October 16.

City of Midland officials said a driver in an SUV was traveling eastbound on Kansas Street when they failed to yield the right of way at the stop sign. Moments later, the SUV struck a Dodge pickup truck that had entered the intersection. The impact of the crash caused the SUV to veer to the left and slam into the nearby Burger King.
