LUBBOCK, TX (01/08/2017) — Mackenzie McCulloch was killed in an accident that occurred on the West Loop 289 access road early Sunday morning.
According to the Lubbock Police Department (LPD), 21-year-old Mackenzie McCulloch died following an accident that occurred in the 1300 block of the West Loop 289 access road in Lubbock, Texas.
The LPD reported that at 1:00 a.m., a passenger vehicle was involved in a minor accident when it struck the southbound guardrail on Loop 289. The driver and passenger (identified as Mackenzie McCulloch) were uninjured, but called for friends to pick them up as the car was disabled.
Officers were still working the scene when friends arrived and parked their car on the shoulder of the West Loop 289 access road. A short time later, another vehicle headed southbound on the Loop 289 access road slammed into the rear of the friend’s vehicle, which was parked on the shoulder of the service road. McCulloch was standing behind the friend’s vehicle at the time, and was pinned between the two vehicles.
“The female was pinned between the two vehicles, causing severe injuries,” said police spokeswoman Tiffany Pelt. “Officers on scene ran to assist the woman, but she was pronounced deceased at the scene just after 1 a.m.”
Charges have not been filed at this time, but an investigation is ongoing.
We’re surprised that police have not yet filed any charges in this case, however the investigation is still in its early stages. If the facts reported are indeed factual, we suspect that the driver who caused the secondary accident could be held criminally and civilly liable.
