On Wednesday, December 30th 2015, at approximately 6:24pm the Abilene Police Department received a call of a major motor vehicle collision in approximately the 4000 block of State Highway 36 south of the airport.

The preliminary investigation indicated that a Dodge pickup driven by Maleesa Lynn Mateljan, 23 of Hamlin, had been traveling south on Highway 36 and was attempting to turn around to travel back north on Highway 36. During the process of this maneuver a Lincoln Towncar driven by Kenneth Atchison, 71 of Abilene, was traveling north bound and collided with the Dodge. Shortly thereafter a Ford F-250 also traveling north struck the Lincoln. The Ford was driven by Kelvin Lynn Tomblin, 51 of Tulia.

Atchison was pronounced deceased at the scene by Justice of the Peace Mike McAuliffe. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor at this time however the dense fog is believed to have been a factor. The investigation is being conducted by officers of the Traffic Division.
