Lubbock police filed reports about two fatal accidents that occurred on Friday night, both after 11 p.m.

The first accident was at 82nd & Ash Avenue. Police say a 2003 Chevy Suburban driven by Robert Joseph Hernandez, 37, was traveling south on Ash Avenue when Hernandez ran a stop sign.

Hernandez hit a 2006 Mercury Mountaineer driven by Allen Henry Liendo, 32, on the driver's side. The Suburban kept going, ejecting the driver and eventually coming to rest after it collided with a fence at the southwest corner of the intersection.

Hernandez was pronounced dead at University Medical Center. Liendo's injuries were not life-threatening. Police say Hernandez was not wearing a seatbelt.

The second accident happened at 1800 North Frankford. Police say Gayland Graham McGill, 71, was driving a 2008 Saturn Vue south when she failed to maintain a single lane and veered off the roadway. Her vehicle hit a concrete culvert and went airborne. McGill was ejected from the vehicle as it landed and rolled several times, eventually coming to rest on top of her.

McGill was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say McGill was not wearing a seatbelt.

We'll continue to update this story as details become available.
