Accused Red Light Runner Cited On Similar Charge In 2006

New information concerning Tuesday's fatal accident in east Lubbock. NewsChannel 11 did some digging, and found that the driver who police say ran a red light, was cited on a similar charge before.

Marcelo Perez Jr., 35, received a ticket for running a stop sign in October 2006, and then two months later - for not wearing a seat belt.

Police say Perez disregarded a red light at MLK & Parkway Tuesday afternoon, and collided with Billy Spence, 62, a U.S. Air Force veteran. Spence was pronounced dead at University Medical Center.

Police are still investigating, and so far no charges have been filed against Perez.
