Aspermont teen killed in 3-vehicle wreck Tuesday

STONEWALL COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

An 18-year-old with connections to Texas Tech was killed in a 3-vehicle accident in Stonewall County on Tuesday morning.

Texas DPS troopers say Matthew Zinn Lindsey was driving his pickup east on Highway 380 when he struck the back left of a 2012 Mack truck pulling a belly dump trailer, also traveling east.

The Mack truck was pulling over to allow another truck with an oversize load to pass in the opposite direction - a 1987 Freightliner pulling the top of an oil derrick.

The DPS report says Lindsey's pickup struck the back of the belly dump trailer, causing the pickup to travel into the path of the westbound oversize load. When the pickup and oversize load came together, the impact sheared the top of the pickup. The weather was clear and the roadway was dry.

DPS is still investigating this crash.

Lindsey's body was taken to the McCoy Funeral Home in Aspermont. The DPS report says he was not wearing a seatbelt.

Matthew Zinn Lindsey is the son of Kim Lindsey, Director of the Texas Tech Equestrian Center.
