Man killed in Hockley Co. wreck

HOCKLEY COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

An accident just west of Lubbock has killed a man near the town of Smyer. 

DPS Troopers, the Hockley County Sheriff's Office, and emergency service crews all responded to the wreck at Highway 1294 and Farm Road 168 around 6 p.m. Wednesday.  That's about 7 miles north of Smyer.

Officials tell us the driver of the truck - James Monty Phillips, 74, of Levelland - was taken to Covenant Hospital, but later died.  Two other people - Eugenio VIllafranco, 68, of Shallowater and Pedro Rodriguez, 18, of Lubbock - were taken to University Medical Center with moderate injuries. One was taken by Aerocare and the other by ambulance.

DPS says Phillips was the only occupant in A Toyota Tacoma traveling south on CR 168 approaching FM 1294. Villafranco and his passenger Pedro Rodriguez were driving east on FM 1294.  Phillips had the stop sign, and failed to yield the right of way, DPS says. Phillips pulled onto FM 1294 and was t-boned on the driver side by Villafranco. All involved were wearing seatbelts.  

At last check, Villafranco and Rodriguez were in stable condition at UMC.
