Due to the collision, Gonzales sustained fatal injuries. Halford and a 17-year-old passenger in his vehicle were injured. Right now, the cause of the crash remains unclear.

One of my main concerns with a late night crash of this severity is simply whether or not it's going to get the attention it deserves. Folks would be surprised to see how often authorities looked into a crash only to come up more or less empty-handed.

Now, this isn't to say officers can't do their jobs—on the contrary. The problem is usually that their departments don't give them the time or tools they need to get the victims and families the clear answers they deserve.

Hopefully Lubbock PD treats this crash with the attention it deserves, since there are families out there who deserve to know how all of this could have been avoided and what may lie ahead for them.
