Lubbock Police Identify Person Killed in Friday Night Crash
A crash on Ave. Q Friday night (July 8) claimed one person's life.
Lubbock police officers responded to a report of the crash at around 9:27 p.m. Friday night.
According to the department, a 2002 Honda Civic and a 2003 Chevy Tahoe were driving southbound on Ave. Q in the 3200 block, with the Tahoe traveling in the center turn lane and the Civic in the lane next to the center lane. Then, a 2007 Ford Five Hundred, which was traveling north in the southbound lanes, crashed head-on with the Civic. The crash forced the two vehicles into the center turn lane, which led to the Chevy Tahoe hitting both vehicles.

The driver of the Ford Five Hundred, who also wasn't identified by police, was transported to UMC with life-threatening injuries.
