A Lubbock man running for Texas Railroad Commissioner died in a car crash this week while campaigning in Midland.
Marvin “Sarge” Summers was a 69-year-old U.S. Army veteran with 30 years of experience in the oil and gas industry. He moved to Lubbock last year, according to social media posts.
The Midland Police Department reports Summers rear-ended a tractor-trailer cargo tank at a high speed Tuesday afternoon. No other injuries were reported.
He posted on Facebook earlier in the day that he would be at multiple events in Midland Tuesday. According to his social media page, Summers has traveled and campaigned throughout the state since announcing his bid for railroad commissioner late last year.
Summers was one of five Republicans running for a seat on the Texas Railroad Commission in the March 1 primary election. There is also one Democratic candidate for the state agency that regulates the oil and gas industry. Three people serve on the commission, but only one position is on the ballot this year.
