A vehicle and pedestrian collide on US 84 resulting in injuries and a fatality.

One person has died, early Tuesday morning, after being struck by a vehicle  on U.S. 84, 
between Shallowater and Lubbock.

Just before 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning, DPS Troopers responded to a crash, on US 84, northwest of FM 2641. The driver was traveling eastbound in a SUV, when they spotted a person in 
the roadway. In an attempt to avoid striking the person, the driver swerved causing the driver 
to lose control, rolling the SUV and striking the pedestrian as a result, according to DPS.

The driver was transported to the hospital with neck and head injuries. The pedestrian was 
pronounced dead on scene.

Following the crash, eastbound traffic on US 84, was diverted onto County Road 1600.
