Levelland man killed in one-vehicle wreck

A Levelland man was killed in a one-vehicle wreck early Saturday just east of Levelland. His passenger has non-life-threatening injuries.

According to the DPS, Joshua Salazar, 30, was speeding in an SUV on Cactus Drive, a dirt road, when he lost control and crashed into a utility pole. Salazar was not wearing a seat belt. He was killed. Passenger Rachel Cruz, 32, of Levelland, was taken to a Lubbock hospital.

Investigators say alcohol may have been a factor. It'll be a few weeks before test results are available.
