One person is dead following a crash early Friday morning.

Twenty-five year-old Fabian Garcia was driving a Chrysler 300 southbound on the I-27 access road near 34th Street at 12:54 a.m. Friday.

The Lubbock Police Department says that 28-year-old Johnathan Perez entered the intersection at 34th Street and I-27 heading westbound on a green light, and Garcia reportedly ran a red light, hitting Perez’s 1989 Chevy pickup.

The passenger in the pickup, 26-year-old Abraham Molina, was taken to UMC, where he later died. Perez suffered critical injuries, and was taken to an area hospital.

Garcia’s passenger, 24-year-old Alexandria Yepe, was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries. Garcia was not injured.

Alcohol or drugs are believed to be a factor in the wreck, according to the police report.

Lubbock Police will shut down the 34th Street and I-27 intersection at 9 a.m. Sunday, January 12th. The intersection will be closed for eastbound and southbound traffic on the west side of I-27. The actual main lanes of the interstate will not be affected. The investigation is expected to take at least two hours to complete.

Police say they will continue to investigate the accident to see if charges are appropriate in the case.
