Sunday night’s fatal car wreck on North Loop 289 claimed a second life.
Ruby Hambrick, 65, of Lubbock died at University Medical Center, Lubbock police said.
Her passenger, 68-year-old Larry Monroe Hambrick of Lubbock, died shortly after being rushed to the hospital Sunday night.
A 21-year-old driver crashed a Chevrolet truck head-on into the Hambricks’ car shortly before 7 p.m. in the 3000 block of the North Loop.
“He may have fallen asleep, but we don’t know yet,” said Police Capt. James Shavers, adding the investigation is on-going.
Daniel Travis Ridley was headed west on the Loop when he lost control of the truck, crossing the median and slamming into the Hambricks’ car in the eastbound lane, according to the police report.
Two other cars, holding three people, also were involved in the wreck, but they did not suffer any injuries.
Ridley was taken to University Medical Center with moderate injuries.

Family, congregation shocked by preacher’s death

Roy McLaurin Jr. was also active in volunteer work

Tragedy touched the lives of a local family and church congregation with the death of 74-year-old Roy Gilbert McLaurin Jr. of Victoria.

A preacher at Central Church of Christ in Victoria for 19 years, McLaurin died Saturday afternoon in a farm equipment malfunction on Saturday, said his brother Gary McLaurin, 60, of Victoria. “Everybody was shocked; he was really loved by a lot of people,” he said.

Elders at McLaurin’s church paid homage to him at the worship service on Sunday, said 55-year-old Nancy Schmidt of Victoria, McLaurin’s daughter.

“Because he meant so much to all of them, they all took turns saying something about my dad,” she said. “It was almost like a funeral with the beautiful things they had to say. It was a celebration service.”
