One person was injured around 8 p.m. Tuesday night when an SUV ran into a duplex at Martin Luther King Blvd and E. Dartmouth Street.

Miguel Serano is in critical condition at UMC as of Wednesday afternoon. Police say speed was a factor in the accident and they are investigating to determine if alcohol was a factor as well.

Six units from Lubbock Fire Rescue along with units from Lubbock Police Department and Lubbock EMS responded to the scene.

A portion of the home has been knocked out and because of the accident the vehicle and the home caught on fire.  A bystander pulled the driver out of the vehicle and the driver was taken to University Medical Center with serious burn injuries.

"Heavy rescue was called out. As you can see, significant damage in this duplex to shore up that duplex to make it as safe as possible so we can go in there and do search make sure there aren't any victims inside that residence," said Battalion Chief Rob Keinast.

Keinast says the Lubbock Fire Marshal's Office is investigating and it is currently too early to tell how or why the vehicle caught fire.

The two residents, Crystle Mojica and her eight-year-old daughter, were not home at the time of the accident.  Mojica says the portion of the home that caught on fire was her daughter's bedroom and all of her school uniforms burned.

"I'm just hoping that if anybody can donate then I would greatly appreciate it," said Mojica.
