Lorenzo Man Dies in Car Accident Near Abernathy

A 70 year-old Lorenzo man died and his wife was injured after DPS say that he failed to stop at a stop sign just outside the Lubbock county line just before 10:00 Saturday morning. NewsChannel 11 was on the scene of this fatal accident.

"I was coming from the west. They were headed east and there were two or three cars at the stop sign, and the Toyota 4-Runner went around them, past them, and ran the stop sign and I hit them on the side," said 24 year-old John Bradshaw.

He was the only person to escape unharmed Saturday morning from this accident just northeast of Lubbock on County Road 54 and Farm Road 400.

DPS says that 70 year-old William Parmer and his wife were headed north on FM 400 in their 2002 4-Runner and failed to observe the stop sign at the intersection. Trooper Guadalupe DeLuna says the fatal accident was in a remote location, posing a challenge to law enforcement as well as the responding emergency crews.

"There's too many high-line wires up here and they figured that the safest place to land would be on I-27 and 54," he explains.

The couple was transported by Aerocare to University Medical Center where William died. DeLuna says it's important to be cautious of signs that warn of an approaching stop.

"Just be aware of the signs up ahead as far as the speed limit signs, there is a reduction of speed, and there is a sign up ahead that says there's an approaching stop sign, so just be aware of what's posted," he said.

Mrs. Parmer is in serious condition at University Medical Center Saturday evening. The accident remains under investigation.
