A Lubbock woman died Friday morning when her car was hit head on by an oncoming pickup truck. It happened two miles North of Tahoka on Highway 87. Corporal John Gonzales with the DPS says the driver of the truck, Lonnie Doyle, was driving the wrong and hit a car coming the other direction. Adam Hernandez and his passenger Marisa Rodriguez were inside that car.
Rodriguez was killed and Aerocare flew Hernandez to Covenant with critical injuries. EMS took Doyle to a Tahoka hospital with minor injuries.
Gonzales says a Mercury Cougar also sideswiped the car following the collision. The driver of that car fled the scene on foot.
