Tulia Bicyclist Killed in Texas Traffic Accident

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 18-Oct-2011


A Swisher County college student was killed in a bicycling accident Sunday afternoon, when he was struck from behind by a vehicle.

Twenty-year-old Aaron Ross of Tulia was traveling on his bicycle, northbound on US 87, 6 miles south of Tulia when he was hit by a 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche. The Chevy was driven by Tulia resident Adeline Chapa Cruz.

Ross was transported to Lubbock’s Covenant Hospital via airlift and we later pronounced dead. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the Texas bicycle accident, police said.

Although an investigation is pending, no charges have been filed against Cruz.

Memorial services will be held at Wayland Baptist at 11 a.m. in the Harral Memorial Auditorium Wednesday, October 19th.

A student at Wayland Baptist University, Ross was studying molecular biology. His twin brother is also a student at the University.

While funeral services are pending, they are under the direction of Tulia’s Kornerstone Funeral Directors.
