Juan Soliz Garcia Killed in Lubbock Two-Vehicle Crash on Highway 84 near CR 7500

Lubbock, Texas (October 3, 2020) – Two people were killed in a two-vehicle crash Thursday afternoon in Lubbock, according to the Texas DPS.

The fatal crash happened just after 1:00 p.m., October 1, on Highway 84 near County Road 7500, near Slaton.

DPS said Thomas Henry Erskine Jr, 18, of Templeton, California, was driving a pickup truck southeast on the highway while Berta Arispe, 59, of Colorado City, was driving a Tahoe northwest.

Erskine came upon a construction vehicle that was directing traffic over to the right lane for a construction company, and he took evasive action by steering hard to the left to avoid other vehicles.

The pickup went through the median and collided with the SUV.

Eliova Franco Arispe, 89, of Colorado City, who was the front-right passenger in the SUV, was killed in the crash.

Another passenger, Madison Halie Karner, 22, of Sweetwater, was taken to University Medical Center with unknown injuries.

Juan Soliz Garcia, 59, of Fort Worth, who was a passenger in the SUV, was ejected and was taken to UMC, where they later died.

Erskine was not seriously injured in the crash.

The troopers are investigating the crash.

We pass our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Juan Soliz Garcia.

Who May Make a Wrongful Death Claim in Texas?

A wrongful death claim for a family member may be brought by spouses, children, or parents. The State of Texas also allows the estate of the deceased to bring a survival action to recover for past medical expenses and conscious pain and suffering, as well as other non-economic damages which the deceased may have suffered before death. Texas does not permit brothers, sisters, cousins, or grandparents to assert any claims for the death of a family member.

Wrongful death claims require an attorney who understands the complexity of the damages caused by a significant loss. The lawyer representing the client has the responsibility to hire the necessary experts to help prove the case.
