New Information In Deadly Accident Involving Wayland Baptist Students

Four people remain in critical condition after an accident that killed two Wayland Baptist students.

Just before 5:30 Wednesday night, a Westbound Jeep Cherokee started passing vehicles on U.S. Highway 70 about 8 miles West of Plainview when it collided head-on with a Pontiac Grand AM. DPS officials are investigating if the setting sun impaired the driver's vision. The jeep contained five Wayland Baptist students on their Fall Break.

19-year-old Katye Mans-Doerfer of Albuquerque and 19-year-old Reid Rogers of Plainview were killed. The driver of the jeep, 19-year-old Abby Holmes of Hobbs, New Mexico, is in critical condition at Covenant Medical Center. Meanwhile, 21-year-old Jonathan Barnes of Tulia is listed in critical condition at University Medical Center. Also at UMC is 22-year-old John Topper of Lockney. He's in satisfactory condition.

A Hale Center family occupied the Grand AM. The driver, 24-year-old Eduardo Rodriguez is in serious condition at University Medical Center. His wife Maria is in critical condition at UMC. Their son, 1-year-old Aurick was taken to Covenant where he also is in critical condition. The couple's 5-year-old daughter Tammy was treated and released.

Since the school is on fall break right now, Wayland Baptist is planning a memorial service for the students next Wednesday morning.
