Update: SUV driver in fatal accident didn't have valid license

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - KCBD NewsChannel 11 has confirmed the driver in a fatal SUV/motorcycle accident did not have a valid license. Lubbock Police are investigating Tuesday's fatal accident to determine if charges will be filed against the driver who hit the motorcycle.

The occupants of the motorcycle, Richard Bagwell, 49, and Christy Winters, 41, died at University Medical Center from injuries suffered from the accident. Police say the motorcycle was heading north on University and an SUV, driven by Candice Fox, 24, was heading south trying to turn and failed to yield. 

Captain Hudgens at LPD says they're continuing to look into the accident. "We're investigating to determine if there were any violations of law, and we won't know that until the investigation is complete," said Captain Scott Hudgens with the Lubbock Police Department.

Hudgens says he is not sure when the investigation will be complete.

KCBD NewsChannel 11 spoke with a motorcycle group about the accident. Their road captain, Rusty Fuller, says he finds cars not paying attention to motorcycles on a regular basis, and wants people to be aware of their surroundings.

"People tend to pay less attention to motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians. I don't know any reason why, other than it's smaller and people underestimate the situation," said Rusty Fuller with The Messengers Motorcycle Club.

KCBD NewsChannel 11 got a chance to visit with Richard Bagwell's stepdaughter and she did not want to go on camera, but did tell us Richard and Christy had been dating for a few months. She also said she would like to talk with the driver of the SUV when the time is right.

Funeral services are pending. We will bring you any updates from the investigation as they become available.
