Lubbock Police to Close 82nd and Quaker Intersection for Investigation

Allen Corbin,

A busy Lubbock intersection will be closed for an accident investigation this weekend.

Lubbock police will close the intersection of 82nd Street and Quaker Avenue for a follow-up investigation in the Tuesday morning wreck that resulted in the death of one woman and the injury of another.

Fifty-seven year-old Sherry Patton Swann is believed to have been travelling at a high rate of speed in her 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe when she ran through a red light at 82nd Street and Quaker, and hit the 2008 BMW 525i driven by 50-year-old LaDon Madden, splitting the vehicle in half.

Swann was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Madden was pulled from the BMW, which had caught fire right after the wreck, by Mike Redeker, a witness at the scene.

Lubbock Police will close off most of the intersection beginning at 6 a.m. Sunday, August 19th. Westbound traffic on 82nd Street will be reduced to one lane, and southbound traffic on Quaker will be rerouted westbound. Eastbound and northbound lanes will be closed entirely.

Sgt. Jonathan Stewart with the Lubbock Police Department discussed this type of investigation with KFYO.
