One Person Dead After Two-Vehicle Accident in Lubbock
The Lubbock Police Department is investigating a fatal crash that occurred Saturday at the intersection of 4th Street and Toledo Avenue in northwest Lubbock.
According to police, when officers arrived at the scene, they found that two pickups had been involved in an accident. A preliminary investigation has revealed that the pickup driving east on 4th Street did not turn even though they were in a turning lane.
Instead, the pickup continued straight through the intersection and struck another pickup that was driving west on 4th Street. The driver of the eastbound pickup was 18-year-old Brenda Castorena. She was taken to a local hospital but later pronounced dead.
Her 22-year-old male passenger was taken to a hospital with serious injuries, as was the 71-year-old driver of the westbound pickup. Police are still investigating what exactly caused the accident.
