17-year-old killed after tragic accident at school

LOVINGTON, N.M. (KRQE) – A 17-year-old high school student was killed after a horrible accident on campus.

Lovington police said it happened Wednesday afternoon in a parking lot just after school let out. The teen badly hurt her head, was airlifted to a hospital in Lubbock and died Thursday night.

Investigators haven’t said who she is.

The only thing they’re saying is a car driving another student was involved and the girl was not hit or run over.

The school district isn’t talking about it.
