NEW DEAL, TX (KCBD) -

Texas Department of Public Safety worked a fatal crash around 2:15 this morning west of new deal on FM 1729.

According to officials, a Lexus passenger vehicle was traveling west when it lost control and rolled several times.

The driver 35-year-old Skyler Lynn Duncan of Lubbock was transported to UMC with critical injuries. Duncan has been released from the hospital as of Wednesday afternoon.

The passenger LaTanya Denise Lacy, 38 of Lubbock, died at the scene. 

DPS says around 2:15 Monday morning, the car was traveling on F.M. 1729, west of County Road 2000, when the driver lost control. The car went through a fence and caught on fire, ending up about a fourth of a mile from where the crash started. 

Volunteer firefighters from New Deal, Abernathy, and Shallowater were on the scene as well as Lubbock EMS and the Lubbock Sheriff's Office. The Medical Examiner arrived at the scene around 5 a.m.
