Woman Injured in Possible Hit-and-run Accident on 50th Street in Lubbock, TX
Lubbock, TX -- March 16, 2023, a woman was injured following an accident where a vehicle struck her, then possibly left the scene.
Preliminary details about the accident say it happened at around 4:00 p.m. at the intersection of 50th Street and Avenue Q. Details right now say only that a white car struck the woman, causing injuries. While early details describe the accident as a hit-and-run, more recent reports say that authorities "later classified it as a collision with injuries."
That's still not exactly clear regarding whether or not the driver involved here stayed at the scene. If they did, then it's likely authorities will move on to finding out who had the right of way as well as how visible and avoidable the victim was. Otherwise, though, if this was a hit and run, police need to release as much information to the public as possible so the community can keep an eye out for any information that can lead to that runaway driver.
