Elizabeth Prado Killed in Auto Accident on Avenue Q in Lubbock, TX

Lubbock, TX — January 1, 2023, 57-year-old Elizabeth Prado was fatally injured in a major crash on Avenue Q in Lubbock.

Authorities say the incident happened around 1:00 a.m. in the area of Avenue Q and 26th Street. Preliminary investigation suggests Prado was a passenger in a southbound SUV on Avenue Q when the driver, 61-year-old Richard Trevino, started to turn left. As the SUV turned it collided with a northbound vehicle in the roadway.

Prado was critically injured in the collision. She was taken to a local hospital where she died a short time later. Trevino and a child in the SUV suffered moderate injuries; the other vehicle's driver received minor injuries.

The crash remains under investigation. No further information is currently available.

Preliminary reports make this sound like a matter of someone failing to yield, but as with any accident it's important to investigate carefully and find out whether anything else was a factor. Poor lighting or sightlines, road and weather conditions, problems or defects in either vehicle, whether both drivers were awake, alert, and focused on the road, and many other specifics must be established in search of the whole story, and until careful attention is paid to get those details people should withhold judgment. A woman lost her life here and that's more than enough reason to ensure the true explanation is found. Will police efforts alone be enough to get it?
