A 55-year-old man from Lubbock was killed in a two-vehicle crash Sunday morning in southwest Midland County.

State troopers reported the crash occurring at about 6:40 a.m. Sunday on FM 1788, mile marker 338, about 17 miles southwest of Midland, a Texas Department of Public Safety news release stated.

Owen Lopez, 47, of Midland was reportedly towing a semi-trailer in a 2007 Mack truck tractor south on FM 1788, the release detailed, while Guadalupe Rivera-Nevarez, 55, was also traveling south behind him. Lopez reportedly made a U-turn across both lanes of traffic when Rivera-Nevarez collided into the trailer Lopez was towing.

Justice of the Peace David Cobbs pronounced Rivera-Nevarez dead at the scene. Lopez was reported uninjured.
