HUTCHINSON COUNTY --   Eleven people are taken to the hospital after two seperate crashes between Fritch and Borger.
    They both happened on highway 136.
    The first happened around 6 this evening; troopers say a driver was trying to cross the roadway, and turn into a private drive, that's when they say another vehicle hit the first.
    The second was a chain-reaction crash after the first because vehicles were stopped in the roadway.
    Right now, the road is only partially re-opened.
