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.
