A medical truck loaded with tanks full of liquid oxygen crashed into a car in Central El Paso, firefighters said.
The accident happened around 3:00 p.m. at the intersection of Yandell and Gateway North.
Investigators said the truck collided with a compact Honda, then flipped over.
Both drivers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
It took emergency crews over 3 hours to clear the accident because some of the oxygen tanks were leaking.
Nearby homes were not evacuated.
