Two Big Spring residents were killed late Friday evening when the vehicle they were in rolled several times along Interstate 20.
Thirty-year-old Reginald Vanderbilt and 40-year-old Tashanna Forman were pronounced deceased by Justice of the Peace Kathryn Wiseman shortly after 11 p.m.
According to law enforcement reports, they were traveling eastbound in a 2001 Lexus RX3 when the vehicle went out of control, rolled several times and came to rest in the I-20 median. Vancerbilt and Forman were both ejected from the vehicle. They were found to be deceased by first responders. No other occupants had been in the vehicle.
Police reports do not indicate who was driving but Big Spring Police Department Public Information Officer Sgt. Tony Everett noted that the accident is under investigation.
Autopsies were ordered on both victims. It is unknown if alcohol was involved, pending toxicology results.
Accident reports indicated that the Lexus RX3 lost a wheel during the accident, which was subsequently struck by another vehicle, causing damage to the vehicle's undercarriage. No injuries were reported as a result.
