A woman is in custody, charged with manslaughter in connection to a 2022 fatal collision in Central Lubbock.
A warrant was issued for 37-year-old Akecia Ramirez on August 23rd for manslaughter regarding a collision that left 32-year-old Jenny Ybarra dead.
Officers rook Ramirez into custody in the 1100 block of East Tulane Street at 1:12 pm on August 29th. Ramirez was transported and booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center without incident.
On December 23, 2022, officers were called to 45th Street and Avenue Q at 11:27 pm for a report of a collision with injuries.
Through the initial course of the investigation, it appears a vehicle being driven by Ramirez, was traveling north in the 4500 block of Avenue Q. Ramirez lost control of the vehicle, which left the roadway striking a pole barricade and multiple vehicles in a car lot before rolling over and striking a light pole.
Ramirez was transported to University Medical Center by EMS with moderate injuries. Ybarra, a passenger in the vehicle, was pronounced deceased on scene. A second passenger, 34-year-old Elias Ramirez, was given medical treatment for moderate injuries.
