A four-vehicle accident in Lafayette County Wednesday afternoon sent one person to the hospital.

The Highway Patrol reports Grant Bench, 56, of Odessa, was westbound on I-70 when he came upon traffic congestion.  He failed to recognize the situation, attempted to avoid the stopped vehicles, and lost control of his car, striking three other vehicles.

He was transported to Centerpoint Hospital with moderate injuries.  The other drivers were not harmed.
