Pedestrian struck, killed by school bus on Avenue Q

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A pedestrian has been killed after being hit by a school bus near Mac Davis and Avenue Q.

Police say Russell Ed Jupe, 40, was walking through a parking lot and failed to yield right of way to the bus heading south at 700 Ave. Q.

The accident happened around 9:40 a.m.

Jupe was taken to UMC with life-threatening injuries and was later pronounced dead.

Police say Jupe was running to try and catch a dog.

The bus, from Tascosa High School in Amarillo, was carrying 28 passengers at the time of the collision, headed to Ragus Aquatic Center at 2004 14th Street.

Jupe's aunt, Lula Pickrell, learned about the accident from Jupe's girlfriend. She said there is nothing bad to say about her nephew, a good person who always helped her family. 

She hopes drivers and pedestrians will be more careful to prevent these types of accidents. 

"The people that are driving need to watch just as much as the person who's walking or riding a bike, especially motorcycles," she said. "It's just not safe anymore…so yeah. People need to watch out."
