A Lubbock man hit by a car Saturday night has died. Police say Eusebio Martinez, 69, was crossing Avenue Q near 28th Street just before 10 O'clock. Martinez was struck by a van and thrown more than 50 feet.
Accident investigators say Martinez crossed in the middle of block rather than at a crosswalk. He died at University Medical Center. Police are investigating the accident, but say they do not believe alcohol or speed played a role in the collision.
