LPD officers responded to reports of a crash involving a semi-truck and SUV in the area of 2200 I-27 northbound access road. The driver and two passengers of the SUV were taken by ambulance to the hospital with moderate to serious injuries. The male driver of the SUV was later pronounced deceased at the hospital.

The driver of the semi-truck was not injured. At this time, it appears the SUV rear ended the semi-truck.

On Tuesday, Dec. 18, crash investigators will temporarily shut down the I-27 northbound access road between 22nd and 23rd Streets to map out the crash scene. This closure will begin at 10:00 a.m. and is expected to last until noon.

Lubbock police say there is a major crash on the NB I-27 access road between 22nd St and 23rd St. That area is shut down. The NB I-27 ramp for 19th St is open, but authorities are asking drivers to avoid the area for the next several hours.
