Lubbock Police on Thursday released a statement after Esteven Flores, 18, was found injured and lying in the street at 94th Street and University Avenue.
The statement said:
At approximately 10:30 p.m. last night, LPD dispatch received a call that a pedestrian had been struck by a pickup truck near 94th Street and University Avenue. Officers arrived and found emergency personnel treating 18-year-old Esteven Flores who was lying in the street. Flores was taken to University Medical Center to be treated for his injuries.
Officers began to question witnesses and other individuals who were with Flores at the time of the accident. Right now the circumstances around the accident are unclear, however through the initial investigation it appears Flores was speaking with someone in the pickup truck and an altercation occurred. The pickup truck then sped off, injuring Flores who was possibly holding onto the truck.
