LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - One Lubbock man died Tuesday when a Peterbilt truck he was driving rolled on Highway 84.

According to the Department of Public Safety, water on the roadway played a factor in the crash.

DPS reports the crash happened at 6:29, Tuesday evening on Hwy. 84 (Clovis Hwy.) between Anton and Shallowater.

Abraham “Abe” Herrera, 48, was driving in the eastbound lanes on US 84. According to DPS, rainy conditions and standing water on the roadway contributed to Herrera’s truck losing control of the vehicle.

The truck went off the edge of the highway on the righthand side, rolled over, and came to a stop in the ditch.

Herrera was pronounced dead on the scene due to injuries from the crash, DPS stated.

Family and friends of the family have set up a GoFundMe account to help with funeral expenses.

The GoFundMe shares he was a husband, grandfather, brother, and friend to many.

“All donations are appreciated and will go directly to the family to help with funeral and burial costs. If you cannot donate, please pray for the entire family and consider sharing this story,” the page reads.
