Brownfield crash victim 'energetic,' former boyfriend says

Emily Leatherwood, 21, died after her car crashed into a passenger bus carrying college athletes in west Lubbock County.

A white Honda Accord struck the back of a bus from Iowa Western Community College head-on Wednesday after the bus stopped at railroad tracks. The driver of the Accord was killed.

Emily Leatherwood was described by her former boyfriend as an energetic high school student who played softball and basketball.

Leatherwood, 21, died Wednesday morning after her car crashed into a passenger bus carrying college athletes in west Lubbock County near the intersection of 19th Street and Inler Avenue about 8:15 a.m.

Justin Salas said he dated Leatherwood during their years at Brownfield High School.

She had graduated from South Plains College on Friday, Salas said.

Authorities said Leatherwood's white Honda Accord struck the back of the bus from Iowa Wester Community College head-on after the bus stopped at railroad tracks. The bus had been traveling westbound on 19th Street.

Ten students from the college were en route to Levelland for a national championship track meet.

Authorities said two students reported they were injured slightly, but they weren't hospitalized.

IWCC head track coach Emmet Statzer said he was not on the bus at the time of the accident. He declined to allow student athletes to speak with a reporter for The Avalanche-Journal.

"We are in the middle of a national athletic championship and we don't need that kind of attention," Statzer said.

Salas said he hadn't seen Leatherwood in a long time, but recalled she served on the Brownfield Student Council and participated in a variety of other extracurricular activities.

He said he was in shock after hearing about Leatherwood's death from friends late Wednesday morning.

"I'm just torn right now," he said. "I can't believe this happened."
