One woman is dead and young child is recovering after a serious crash with a tanker truck near the Lubbock and Hockley County lines. Department of Public Safety troopers said the accident happened around 9:45 a.m. Saturday.
Based on an initial investigation, troopers believe the driver of the car, Lance Shoffner, 30, failed to stop at the stop sign at the intersection of F.M. 2378 and C.R. 6910. Troopers said that's when a tanker truck hauling water and the car collided.
Shoffner and his front seat passenger Katherine Davis, 21, were transported to Covenant where Davis later died. One-year-old Grace Shoffner is reported to be in good condition at Covenant Children's.
According to a report, Shoffner was wearing his seatbelt. It's not clear whether Davis or the child were buckled properly.
