LUBBOCK COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

The westbound lanes on Highway 62/82 about 3 miles west of Wolfforth have been reopened following a deadly crash.

Westbound traffic on Highway 62/82 was closed and drivers were diverted onto FM 1585 as crews worked to clear the scene.

Texas State Troopers, Lubbock County Sheriff Deputies and Wolfforth Fire Department were called to the scene at 4:30 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 5.

The driver of the SUV, 41-year-old Gregory Page Vandergriff, Jr., of Lubbock, was pronounced dead at the scene. DPS officials say Vandergriff failed to stop at the stop sign on FM 1585 and hit the back of the semi.

The semi driver, 50-year-old J. Ricardo Garcia, of Shallowater, was not injured. He was traveling to Brownfield to deliver perishable items to a grocery store.
