One Person Dead Following Vehicle Accident on Amarillo Boulevard

One person has died following a vehicle accident on Amarillo Boulevard this morning.

It was reported by the Amarillo Police Department that a 1997 Suburban driven by Anita Brown Lewis, 46, had broken down in the right hand lane of westbound traffic in the 2100 block of Amarillo Boulevard.

Lewis' vehicle was then rear-ended by a 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix driven by Herman Nanez Sr., 51. Nanez died at the scene of the accident, as a result of injuries received in the wreck.

Speed and not wearing a seatbelt are believed to be factors in the incident.

The wreck is currently under investigation by APD's Traffic Investigation Unit.
