Lubbock Teenager Killed in Thursday Night Vehicle Pileup
One person is dead after a multi-vehicle wreck in northeast Lubbock late Thursday night.
The wreck happened just after 11:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 5th near North Guava and Parkway Drive.
According to Lubbock Police, 40-year-old Monica Timmons was driving a 2007 Saturn Ion southbound at 100 North Guava when she became unconscious and stopped in the intersection of North Guava and Parkway Drive.
The seven-year-old passenger in the Saturn got out of the vehicle and flagged down the driver of another nearby vehicle, who stopped on the west side of Timmons’ vehicle.
Other vehicles stopped nearby, and some got out of their vehicles to respond to the seven-year-old in the street, including 18-year-old Jolan Hunter.
At that time, 20-year-old Hunter Parrott reportedly failed to control speed in a 2002 Ford F-350 and smashed into the Cadillac of a person that had stopped at the intersection.
The Cadillac then crashed into Timmons’ Saturn, which then hit Jolan Hunter, the seven-year-old, and a 16-year-old girl who were standing by the vehicles.
Jolan Hunter was taken to University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. The seven-year-old and the 16-year-old were taken to various hospitals. They were treated and released with minor injuries.
Lubbock Police say they are investigating possible charges and the possible involvement of drugs or alcohol.
