LAWTON, Okla._Chaos in Lawton tonight as one accident on a busy roadway quickly causes another separate collision within minutes, sending one child to the hospital.

It all started around 7 p.m. Saturday evening...police say a possibly drunk driver in a white sedan was traveling westbound on Cache Road near Quanah Parker Trailway. He hit a concrete barrier, sending his car into the roadway's median. Once police arrived on the scene and approached the man, he became very combative with officers, so they tazed him.

The whole thing -- witnessed by drivers passing by.

Just minutes after the accident, one driver in a gold sedan also traveling west -- this time on Quanah Parker Trailway -- took a look at the scene a little too long and he ended up rear-ending a black Corvette, sending it into the SUV in front of it. The impact pushed the SUV up as the Corvette wedged underneath it.

One child was taken to the hospital -- it's unclear which vehicle he was riding in or what his condition is. Meanwhile, the driver of the white sedan in the first accident was taken to jail on suspicion of drunk driving.
