Two people were injured in an accident in Haskell County, on Thursday.

The crash happened at 1:44 p.m. at the intersection of U.S. 83 Highway and U.S. 56 Highway.

A Cadillac SRX being driven by Phillip Johnson, 53, of Wichita was traveling westbound on U.S. 56 Hwy while a Freightliner semi-truck being driven by Moel Brau Ferriol, 45, of Houston, was traveling southbound on U.S. 83 Hwy.
