Sixth person dies in fatal Lubbock County accident

LUBBOCK COUNTY, TX (KCBD) - A sixth person had died following Friday's fatal crash northwest of Lubbock.  Saturday afternoon, NewsChannel 11 learned 76-year-old Jean Green of Olton died at University Medical Center.

Green was involved in the crash that killed 24-year-old Rita Gutierrez, 31-year-old Guadalupe Salinas, eight-year-old Fabian Sanchez, 10-year-old Xavier Sanchez, and seven-year-old Isaac Gutierrez.  Investigators say the five were headed east on F.M. 2641 when their sedan collided with Green's SUV headed north on County Road 1700. Authorities say it's possible Green failed to yield the right of way at the stop sign.

30-year-old Josiefina Gutierrez was driving the sedan. She was in good condition at UMC Saturday night.  DPS says this isn't the first fatal accident at this particular intersection.  "It's had its cases of a number of severe crashes. A lot of injured people as well as, unfortunately, the fatalities," DPS Corporal John Gonzalez said. 

Tonight on NewsChannel 11 at 10, we talk with Lubbock County Commissioner Pattie Jones about possible changes to this intersection and how it could improve safety.
