Alcohol And Speed Play Role In Fatal North Lubbock Accident

Lubbock Police say alcohol and speed played a role in a fatal North Lubbock accident. Around 3:30 a.m. Thursday morning first responders were called to the 1700 block of Clovis Highway after a car crashed into a car dealership.

The 1997 Ford Crown Victoria hit a chain link fence at Chaparral Motors. NewsChannel 11 has learned 26-year old Jayson Garcia was alive when EMS arrived. Garcia was taken to University Medical Center, where he later died.

Apparently Garcia was North bound on Avenue Q. Police tell us he lost control while making a turn onto the Clovis Highway and hit the curb. The car then went over landscape rocks and damaged several cars at Chaparral Motors.

Investigators were back on the scene just before lunchtime on Thursday. Initially it was not clear if another person was in the car with Garcia. Late Thursday afternoon police tell us evidence now shows Garcia was the driver and the only person in the car.

An autopsy is expected in the next few days. Police are still investigating this accident. 

A memorial fund is in place at Wells Fargo bank.
