Red Light Runner Causes Collision in Southeast Lubbock

A red light runner is said to be to blame for a crash in Southeast Lubbock Tuesday morning. It happened at about 10:30 a.m., at the intersection of US-84 and the I-27 access road.

According to Lubbock Police, 23-year-old Oscar Zepeda, Jr. of Laporte, TX, ran the light, while eastbound on US-84 in a Chevy Pickup. He collided with a Mitsubishi Galant, headed northbound. The impact sent the Mitsubishi careening into the guard rail.

Firefighters used the "jaws of life" to free the driver, 23-year-old Lydia Hurtado of Lubbock. Hurtado was treated at University Medical Center, and has since been released.

Zepeda refused treatment, and was ticketed on sight for running the red light.
