Pedestrian struck, killed by vehicle on Clovis Road

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock police are still investigating a traffic fatality this week. Just after midnight Saturday, a pedestrian - Armando Carreon Saenz, 41 - was found on the roadside at 2300 Clovis Road. Saenz had been struck by an unknown vehicle. He was transported to UMC by EMS and died there.

The investigation is on-going.

Area residents say the area has a reputation for being dangerous.

"I've witnessed probably 14 in the last two years on Clovis Road here." 

Terry Williams works at a nearby business and he is not surprised to hear of the accident.

"There was one car got flipped over cause they didn't see and when they came into the intersection a car hit him from the side."

He feels the reason for all these accidents is clear.

"Lighting is bad over there," he said.

That's something we heard from everyone we talked to - Clovis Road is too dark.

"Sometimes they can't see the signs telling them how fast the cars should go."

Sabrina Torres lives near Clovis Road and says people simply can't see - and they end up speeding. 

"They end up going way faster than the speed limit and there's nobody to tell them to slow down or anything so they go too fast and they have a head-on collision," she said.

Sigfredo Pardo also lives in this area, and he believes that kid's safety should be the number one priority.

"You can see the people's and young people's bikes right here in this area, so it's really a danger road for cruising," he said.

People living and working in the area say the city needs to act.
