Blowout caused rollover that killed Shallowater teen

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Family, friends, and classmates continue to mourn the loss of a Shallowater High School student.

18-year-old Garret Hacker died Sunday, Nov. 17, in a rollover near Tatum, New Mexico.

New Mexico State Police say Hacker was a passenger in a pickup driven by 17-year-old Zachary Thompson of Amherst.

19-year-old Macy Long was also a passenger in the vehicle.

The teens were traveling on US Highway 380 when a tire blew out causing the truck to veer off the road and flip several times.

Hacker and Long were ejected from the vehicle.

Police say they were not wearing seat belts.

Counselors were at Shallowater High School yesterday to help students and faculty cope with the loss.

Macy Long remains in serious condition at UMC while Thompson, who was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, was treated for minor injuries.
