Lubbock Intersection Closed For Accident Investigation This Sunday

The intersection of 82nd and Quaker will be closed this Sunday beginning at 6 AM for an investigation of Tuesday’s fatal accident.


LPD Accident Investigators will be on scene and the intersection will be closed to normal traffic for several hours beginning at 6:00 AM.

Westbound traffic on 82nd will be down to one lane. Southbound traffic on Quaker will be re-routed westbound. Eastbound and northbound lanes will be completely closed.

Drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes to avoid delays.

A horrific two-car accident left one person dead and another injured earlier this week in southwest Lubbock when a grey Chevy Tahoe collided with a BMW sedan at a high rate of speed at the intersection of 82nd and Quaker.

LPD tells Kool FM News that witnesses said the SUV was allegedly traveling over 80 mph.  In the accident, Sherry Swann was the driver of the Tahoe and killed at the scene. She was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle.

The driver of the BMW, Ladon Wells, was taken to UMC with serious injuries.
