New legal wrangling after death of Lubbock Co. deputy

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - We continue following the legal fallout after a Lubbock County sheriff's deputy was killed in the line of duty.  

Back on April 26th, Corporal D. Robert Harvey's squad car collided with a pickup truck near 88th and MLK. Authorites originally identified the other driver as Justin McKinney, who was accused of intoxication manslaughter.

Shortly after the crash, McKinney claimed through court proceedings that Jason Walkup was the driver and authorities are investigating that possibility. Both were in the truck at the time of the crash.  

More recently, Jason Walkup has sued McKinney saying McKinney really was the driver, not Walkup. Walkup is seeking a court order forcing McKinney to preserve all evidence including the crashed pickup truck.

Incidentally, the earliest court documents refer to Walkup as Justin Walkup. This most recent lawsuit refers to him as Jason Walkup. Walkup's attorney has not yet returned a call for comment.
