Lubbock man dies following accident on Idalou Highway

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The cause of a deadly accident along U.S. Highway 62/82 between Lubbock and Idalou remains under investigation. 

Investigators believe that Bonner Smith, 51, crashed his Sedan into a tree in the median of Highway 62/82, near F. M. 1729.  "It looks obvious that he went off the roadway, so we're not certain whether alcohol or a medical condition could have contributed," Cpl. John Gonzales with the Texas Dept. of Public Safety said.

First responders had to cut Smith free from the vehicle, and rushed to the hospital by helicopter where he would later die around 4:15 Monday afternoon.

Authorities had to divert eastbound traffic on Highway 62/82 as they worked to free Smith. We'll bring you the latest developments as they come into KCBD NewsChannel 11.
