Driver lost life after Sunday morning SUV crash

Lubbock police are investigating an early Sunday morning SUV crash.  Sunday evening police identified the driver as Antonio Martinez, 19.  Martinez died of injuries at University Medical Center.

Police say Martinez was westbound on East 50th Street near Southeast Drive, ran a stop sign, lost control and crashed into a utility pole.  Passenger Patricia Martinez, 31, was last known to be in serious condition.  An 11-year-old was also in the SUV but fortunately did not suffer life-threatening injuries according to police.

A KCBD NewsChannel 11 photojournalist says it took firefighters using the jaws of life for an estimated 30 minutes to get the driver out of the smashed up SUV. 

The family of Antonio Martinez are seeking donations for his funeral. Donations can be sent to Calvillo Funeral Home which is located at 206 E. 19th. The phone number for the funeral home is (806) 765-5555.
