Drivers Cleared in Fatal Crashes

The Lubbock County Grand Jury reconvened for one last time this month and Wednesday they made a decision about two drivers involved in two deadly accidents.

Last March, 54-year-old Enedina Valdez was killed in an accident. She was crossing Avenue Q at 46th street, when she was struck by a van. Lubbock police say Valdez failed to yield the right of way to oncoming traffic. The driver, Stacey Cross, was cleared of any wrongdoing.

The Lubbock Grand Jury also cleared 23-year-old Daquita Mitchell in another deadly accident. It happened in September of last year, in north Lubbock County. Police say Mitchell failed to stop at the intersection of FM 26-41 and North University. Her passenger, 21-year-old Sheena Ray of Odessa died when her car was hit on both sides, by oncoming traffic.
