Two Fatal Accidents Occurred Over the Christmas Weekend

A difficult Christmas for family and friends of two South Plains residents who were killed in separate accidents over the holiday weekend.

The first accident happened in Lubbock County 1 mile South of County Road 7600 on County Road 2130. DPS says 48-year-old Larry Don Brand of Lubbock lost control of his motorcycle just after 1:30am Saturday. He hit a ditch, causing the bike to flip twice. Brand died at Covenant Medical Center.

Another fatal accident happened just after 5am Sunday in Hockley County. DPS says 28-year-old Frank Mata of Sundown was about a mile East of Sundown on FM 301 when he drifted off the road. Mata over corrected, causing the car to roll four times. Mata's passenger, 28-year-old Alexander Garcia of Littlefield was thrown from the car. Garcia died on the way to the hospital. Mata is in satisfactory condition at University Medical Center at this hour.
