Two Dead in Early Morning Wreck in Randall County


DPS is reporting two people are dead and one injured after a morning wreck on FM 1541.

Officials say 2015 International yard truck tractor towing a 2010 Utility reefer semi-trailer was attempting to back across FM-1541 and into the loading dock of Affiliated Foods, Inc.

That is when a Tow Truck with 28-year-old Adam Taulbee, of Austin, and 28-year-old Laura Almanza, of Lubbock, collided into the towed semi-trailer of the first vehicle.

The tow truck then traveled underneath the towed semi-trailer of the first vehicle, causing the cab to be removed from the tow truck.

Taulbee and Almanza died at the scene. 

The crash remains under investigation.
