Lubbock business leader dead after crash in Bailey County

BAILEY COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

The Texas Department of Public Safety says a Lubbock man lost his life Monday afternoon in a one-vehicle crash in Bailey County.

At approximately 10:40 AM, Charles David Sharp, 51, was driving his 2011 Lexus 4-door northbound on State Highway 214, 4.5 miles south of Farm to Market Road 298.  The location is south of Muleshoe in Bailey County.  

It was a one-vehicle crash and DPS says Sharp was the only one in the vehicle.  DPS says his vehicle veered to the right, struck a fence, continued into a field and then struck a utility pole.

Details about the specific cause of the crash were not known and the investigation was continuing on Monday evening. 

Sharp was the former director of Market Lubbock Inc., the City of Lubbock's economic development agency, which was the predecessor of the Lubbock Economic Development Alliance.  Sharp was also the brother of nationally-famous former Lady Raider basketball coach Marsha Sharp.  

Director of Athletics, Kirby Hocutt said, "Our heartfelt condolences go out to Coach Marsha Sharp and her family this evening as they cope with this devastating loss.  The Sharp family has meant so much to Texas Tech University, this community and West Texas for many years, and they will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers in the coming days."

Sharp's funeral services will be at 2 p.m. Friday at the Second Baptist Church in Lubbock.
