Police release name of man killed in wreck at 98th & Knoxville

Posted: Updated:

Lubbock police and Lubbock Fire Rescue responded to a fatal accident at 98th and Knoxville Wednesday morning around 10:22 a.m.

Police say a driver in a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu was driving eastbound and failed to maintain one lane. The vehicle crossed the westbound lanes as it traveled northeast and collided with a concrete wall and fence on the northeast corner of the intersection of 98th Street and the west alley of 9700 Knoxville.

The front seat passenger, Eduviges Armando Payan, 28, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and rear seat passenger were transported to UMC with life-threatening injuries.

Responders had to call for the Jaws of Life.

Police say alcohol and drugs were not a factor but they believe that the driver had medical issues that may have caused the accident. 

If you'd like to help the Payan family, they are accepting donations here.
