2 Killed in West Texas Wrong-Way Wreck

By  | 

LUBBOCK- Two people have been killed and another critically injured in a head-on collision after one vehicle was going the wrong way on a West Texas highway.

Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Bryan Witt says a mother and daughter were dead at the scene Monday along U.S. 84 about 25 miles northeast of Lubbock.

Witt says a man was driving an SUV west in the roadway's eastbound lanes when the head-on collision occurred. Witt says 911 calls to a police resulted in an officer trying to catch up to the wrong-way driver. The accident occurred before the officer could intervene.

Witt says the injured man was taken to a Lubbock hospital and remained in critical condition.

No names have been released.
