Plainview, TX – Eduardo & Rosalba Dorantes Killed In US HWY 70 Crash
Plainview, TX (June 12, 2019) – On June 10, just after 3 p.m., police and emergency crews responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on US Highway 70.
According to reports, a semi-truck was traveling westbound down US Highway 70. When the vehicle reached Sun Road, a trailer came detached from a semi-truck heading the opposite way. The trailer crossed over the center median and struck the car head-on.
Firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate two people inside the vehicle. In total, three victims were injured in the collision. Two patients were transported via air helicopter to UMC Lubbock, where they later succumbed to their injuries.
A third victim remains in Covenant Hospital Plainview in critical condition.
Authorities later identified the two victims killed in this collision as Eduardo and Rosalba Dorantes.
Our sympathies are with the injured victim and their family, and we would like to offer our sincere condolences to the families of Eduardo and Rosalba Dorantes. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
