Deadly Wreck Early Saturday Morning

A member of a prominent Lubbock family was killed in a deadly car accident early Saturday morning. 44 year-old Joe Kirk Fulton Jr. was killed in a car accident Saturday morning as well as 20 year-old passenger Melinda Lee Yuen.

Police say it happened sometime between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m., but the car was not found until 7:30 a.m. Fulton was driving his 2002 Dodge Viper south on Indiana past 110th Street when he apparently lost control and overcorrected. His car flipped at least eight times, traveled a quarter of a mile, and landed in a cotton field.

Fulton was last seen at the airport around 1:30 in the morning. He was a stunt pilot scheduled to perform at this weekend's air show. DPS officials say alcohol was a factor. The medical examiners recovered the bodies, and they were taken to the University Medial Center morgue. Fulton is the oldest son of Joe Kirk Fulton, who was the first Masked Rider at Texas Tech.
