A Lubbock man described himself as a "6 out of 10 on a scale of sober to intoxicated" when he veered into oncoming traffic and crashed head-on with another vehicle.
The crash happened just before midnight on Friday, November 4th. KAMC News reports that 21-year-old Uris Lagunes was driving eastbound in the 5400 block of 19th Street when he cross into the westbound lanes and hit another vehicle, driven by 18-year-old Lexy Vasquez, head-on.
Lagunes, Vasquez and one of Vasquez's passengers were taken to University Medical Center with serious injuries. 2 other passengers in Vasquez's vehicle only suffered moderate injuries.
An officer with Lubbock Police spoke with Lagunes after the crash. He told the officer that he had 2 beers before driving home. Lagunes declined to give a blood sample voluntarily, however, so a warrant for a blood sample was obtained.
The investigation into this crash is ongoing.
