According to Wichita Falls Police Public Information Officer Jeff Hughes, officers responded to a pin-in wreck in the 200 block of Central Freeway near Scotland Park shortly before 6 p.m. Saturday, June 25.
A white Chevrolet pickup traveling southbound on Central Freeway in the right lane swerved, crossing all lanes of traffic, and struck the concrete barrier nearly head on.

The 60-year-old driver was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and, at time of publication, is listed in critical condition. The passenger was treated for minor injuries.
Names are not being released at this time due to the ongoing investigation.
