LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) –  Lubbock Police have identified the pedestrian killed Friday afternoon at the South Loop and Quaker. Police identified the victim as 70-year-old Liuhua Zhou.

There was early speculation that Zhou was homeless, but that is not true. She was identified when a family member in New York called Lubbock Police to file a missing persons report after Zhou did not arrive to meet her grandchildren after school.

Police say the victim did not use a crosswalk when trying to cross Quaker on foot. The driver, 28-year-old Benjamin Rodriguez, was stopped at the red light at Quaker going north. Police say when the light turned green he hit the woman and traveled some distance before was able to stop.

"I believe there was a head injury, and again, they were considered quite severe. I know some pedestrians immediately began to try to provide aid, and EMS transported her immediately, but unfortunately she was pronounced dead at the hospital," says Captain Greg Stevens with the Lubbock Police Department.

Police say while the accident is still under investigation and it does not look like there will be any charges filed at this time.

This is the 19th fatal accident in Lubbock this year with 20 deaths. Zhou is the seventh pedestrian killed by a car.
