A man who had worked for the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office died and a woman was critically injured in a Saturday morning collision on Interstate 27.
The two-vehicle accident occurred at about 7:55 a.m. in the 5300 block of the interstate.
Tommy Dale Lamkin, 36, was traveling south on I-27 in a 1996 Chevy Silverado when a northbound 1986 Jeep Comanche veered into his path, according to a police report.
The Jeep swerved to the left, crossed over the median and hit the Chevy.
Lamkin was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Jeep, 40-year-old Kellie Anne Lewis of Lubbock, was transported to University Medical Center.
Lamkin had been wearing a seat belt, but Lewis was not.
Investigators are still working to determine the cause of the crash.
