LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A new arrest warrant has been issued for Lubbock resident Jerry Nale after he failed to appear in court on Monday.

Nale is facing charges in connection with a fatal crash that happened in Portales, New Mexico on March 29.

Nale, 18, previously turned himself into the Lubbock Police Department on May 18 on a warrant charging him with aggravated fleeing a law enforcement officer, homicide by motor vehicle and several other felony charges related to the crash.

Nale was the driver of the vehicle and, while speeding away from officers, lost control of the vehicle, causing it to roll. Both Nale and Trinity Jackson, 16, were ejected from the vehicle and had to be airlifted to Lubbock for serious injuries. Jackson died later that evening at University Medical Center.

Jackson's younger brother was also in the vehicle and was treated and released into the custody of CYFD until family members could arrive from Lubbock to take custody of him.

Chief Pat Gallegos said that this was an extremely tragic incident and has touched the lives of many on both sides of the families. He said that any time a child is lost it effects the officers, investigators and our entire community.
