HOUSTON—An 18-wheeler crashed into a grounds crew consisting of seven prisoners from the Clemens Unit Wednesday in Brazoria County.

It happened at about 12:40 p.m. in the 11,000 block of Highway 36 near FM 2004.

Investigators said the crew was walking back to the prison after doing routine landscaping at a nearby employee housing area.

All seven of the prisoners were transported to Brazosport Memorial Hospital in Lake Jackson; at least one was listed in serious condition.
