Aerocare lifts critically-injured man from Friday night collision

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock County man was in critical condition Friday night after a collision at Woodrow & Indiana.  The accident happened just after 7PM.

DPS Troopers say Brian Dunahoo was headed south on Indiana toward Woodrow, when he failed to stop at the stop sign.  He continued south at a high rate of speed, lost control, and went airborne.  His truck slammed into an SUV headed north on Indiana.

Dunahoo's vehicle overturned and he was partially ejected.  He was transported to UMC by Aerocare, where he remains with critical injuries.

The passengers in the SUV, Janet and Joe Joiner and their 4 year old son, were all taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Troopers say speed appears to be the main factor in the accident, and they are looking into whether Dunahoo may have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.
