It appears your tree may have had an injury; either mechanical or perhaps from sun scorch.

I could not find any information on the bumps that appear on the trunks of your trees.
Are the trees showing any other signs of stress? Yellowing of leaves, leaf spots?
I would show the image to your County Extension Office, they may have information on local issues with Crepe Myrtle.
