Two Killed in Rollover Near Reese Center

Two people are dead following an accident in northwest Lubbock County. DPS troopers say 22-year-old Kevin Umbarger, of Levelland, veered off the road Sunday night while traveling west on F.M. 2641, near F.M. 2378, northwest of Reese Center.

He overcorrected, causing his 2001 Ford pickup to roll several times. Umbarger and his passenger, 17-year-old Christin Curti, were thrown from the truck and died at the scene.

A passing motorist came across the wreckage around 11:50 p.m. and notified authorities. DPS troopers say speed played a role in the accident.
