The Lubbock Police Department’s Major Crash Unit is investigating a motorcycle collision in Central Lubbock that left a woman dead.
Officers responded to a report of a collision with injuries in the 6100 block of Sherman Avenue at 3:51 pm on Saturday, August 5, 2023.
Through the initial course of the investigation, it appears 58-year-old Robin Grasso was operating a motorcycle and backed out of her driveway before traveling north on Sherman Avenue. It appears shortly after the motorcycle accelerated off the roadway, it struck a parked SUV. No one was inside the SUV at the time of the crash.
Grasso was transported to University Medical Center via EMS with moderate injuries, which is why a MCIU callout was not initiated. She was pronounced deceased on Sunday, August 6, prompting an investigation by LPD’s MCIU.
The investigation is ongoing.
