Abilene police are urging drivers to slow down after responding to two accidents on the Interstate 20 service road near the Pine Street exit in two days.

On Saturday, two men traveling back to home to the metroplex were heading eastbound on Interstate 20 when the driver lost control as he was exiting Pine Street.

Police say the driver was exiting too fast. As a result, the SUV struck a curb and rolled over a couple of times. Both men were treated at the scene and sustained minor cuts and bruises. Both were wearing a seat belt, according to a police officer at the scene.

The day before, there was a five-vehicle collision in the same stretch for the same reason.
