Vicente Alfonzo Valdez Injured in Car Accident in Lubbock, TX
Lubbock, TX -- January 7, 2023, Vicente Alfonzo Valdez was injured following an accident where the vehicle he was in crashed off-road.
Authorities said that the accident happened at around 4:00 a.m. at the intersection of 130th Street and Indiana Avenue.
Initial details said that 27-year-old Vicente Alfonzo Valdez and 25-year-old Adrian Armando Valdez were in a Ford F-150 traveling westbound on 130th Street. At the intersection, the vehicle somehow ran off the corner where it crashed into a pole.
Vicente Valdez's injuries were said to be incapacitating due to the crash. Adrian Valdez's condition was not specified. At this time, the cause of the crash can't be confirmed. Perhaps authorities have been thorough behind the scenes and have more answers than what they've released to the public. Unfortunately, though, it wouldn't surprise me if something important is slipping through the cracks here.
I've had countless people come to me about crashes they couldn't avoid, due to things like tire issues, mechanical defects, medical conditions, road hazards, other drivers leaving the scene, etc. Yet when they spoke with police, all they got was a sparse report saying the driver was speeding, fatigued, or distracted. Those are common factors, of course, but that often leads to people jumping to conclusions without letting the evidence speak for itself.
Did this crash get the proper attention to ensure those involved weren't left with unanswered questions?
