LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Family and friends are mourning the death of a South Plains College student. Tristan Judkins, 25, died Monday from injuries he suffered in a motorcycle accident in September.
Police say Judkins was speeding on West Loop 289, around midnight on September 15th, when he missed the exit for the frontage road near 8th street. He went into a construction zone, hit a pile of dirt, and then crashed.
Judkins was hospitalized with a serious head injury. His female passenger, 21-year-old Amber Lasserre, suffered injuries to her legs and was in serious condition. They were both taken to UMC.
Funeral services for Judkins will be held Saturday in Stinnett, just north of Amarillo.
