Two Hit And Runs, One Fatality

Posted:

A Lubbock motorcyclist is dead, another person is injured and a woman is in police custody for multiple alleged hit and runs. Right now police are trying to piece together the deadly chain of events. And they say alcohol may be a factor.  

The victim is 55-year-old Monty Wampler of Lubbock. The first hit and run happened at 7:40 Thursday night. That's when police say a 1987 Mercury Grand Marque was bound on Avenue D and slammed into a 2000 Harley Davidson at the intersection of 50th Street. The motorcycle got wedged underneath the car. The driver backed up and fled the scene again North on Avenue D where she hit a pedestrian running over the woman's legs.

At that point two passengers got out of the car and took off. Four blocks away on 46th street she got into another hit and run with a car. Witness described the suspect's vehicle to police and within minutes she was apprehended at the Super-8 motel at 66th and I-27.

In custody tonight on an outstanding warrant is Rochelle Ranson. We've also learned, the pedestrian hit was taken to covenant with serious injuries. Again 55-year-old Monty Wampler died at UMC.
