Several prison inmates are now in a hospital after the trailer they were on crashed with an 18-wheeler in southwest Brazoria County.

Prison officials tell us the inmates are trustees from the Clemens Unit and were working outside the prison. Seven trustees were on a flatbed trailer being pulled by a tractor on FM 2004 at Highway 36 Wednesday afternoon when a truck hit them.

The victims are at Brazos Memorial Hospital in Lake Jackson. One is said to have serious injuries.
