Lubbock Pedestrian Killed

A Lubbock man is dead, becoming the second pedestrian to die on Lubbock roadways this week and the 8th this year.

Luddy Hatla was walking in the 4700 block of 4th Street around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night when he was hit by a sport utility vehicle and then by a second vehicle.

The driver of that second car, tells NewsChannel 11 that she didn't realize it was a person she hit. She thought it was a pillow or box. Charges are not expected against either of the drivers.

A close friend of Hatla's tells us he was a good man but was facing some challenges. She also tells us, he was deaf, making Hatla the second deaf pedestrian to die in the last three weeks. 

Last month, 24-year-old Andrea Deanda died when she stepped out in front of a truck on the Clovis highway and North Frankford.  She was apparently trying to wave someone for help.

Just two days ago, 21-year-old Cody Dwight Green was killed near 4th and Avenue V. The construction worker was washing barrels along the side of the Marsha Sharp Freeway when he was hit by a semi.
