Man killed in rollover accident in east Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A rollover accident in east Lubbock killed one man and sent three others to the hospital Wednesday afternoon.  Around 3:45 p.m. a pick-up rolled along East Erskine Street, near U.S. Highway 62/82. Police say four men were in the truck.

When they arrived on scene, one person wad dead and another was pinned underneath the truck. Aerocare rushed one person to the hospital. EMS took two others. Authorities were still on scene late into the evening, but they say skid marks on the roadway seem to show speed was a factor in the crash.

"Anywhere from say 300 to 400 feet long, there's an inordinate amount of skid marks. It's very, very long which is what leads us to believe speed was in play here," Lubbock Police Sergeant John Hays said. 

Authorities say Antonio Vega, 33 died in the accident.  The driver Vincent Sauceda, 30 and to other passengers Jose Ramirez, 26 and Andres Bazan, 33 remained hospitalized Wednesday night.
