A 31-year-old Dorothy man died at a Lubbock, Texas, hospital July 1 after succumbing to injuries from a car crash late last month, the Lubbock Avalanche Journal said.

Raymond E. Phelps was driving north and veered into the median in the 3900 block of East Loop 289 on June 29, according to what Lubbock police told the newspaper.

Phelps’ vehicle hit the guardrail and fell between the overpasses, causing the car to catch on fire, the newspaper said.

Lubbock Fire Rescue extinguished the fire and extricated Phelps from the vehicle, the newspaper said. He was taken by EMS to a Lubbock hospital.

Investigators were still trying to determine the circumstances leading up to the crash as of last week, the newspaper said.

Phelps was born in Vineland and graduated from Buena Regional High School in 2005. He attended Cumberland County Votech, where he received his cosmetology/barber license.

Phelps worked for several barber shops in South Jersey, according to his obituary.
