Two were killed and two injured in a 2-vehicle accident Thursday night in Lamb County.

Police say around 9 p.m., Rigoberto Diaz Gonzales, 55, was driving a truck and pulling a utility trailer east on US 84 when high winds and wet roads caused his truck to jackknife into the path of a car driven by Vincent Montez, 75. The vehicles collided and spun into a ditch facing opposite directions.

Both Montez and one of his passengers Gabriel Pinon, Jr., 7 were killed in the crash. Montez was pronounced dead at 10:02. Pinon, Jr. was taken to Littlefield Hospital and died receiving treatment there. Montez was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. It is unknown if Pinon, Jr. was wearing a seatbelt when the accident occurred.

The third passenger in Montez' car, Gabriel Pinon, Sr., 37 and Diaz Gonzales are in stable condition at Littlefield Hospital.

A memorial fund has been set up for Gabriel Pinon, Jr. and Sr. at any First United Bank location under the name Marlene L. Martha.
