In Hudspeth County, on West IH-10 near mile marker 134 at about 9:03 P.M. in the evening of April 12th, a collision involving two vehicles injured one and killed two individuals. The vehicle (Pictured above) attempted to make a left turn on a crossroad of the highway from the right lane of traffic. In doing so, the driver, a male 24 year old from Charlotte North Carolina, put his vehicle and his passenger in direct danger of an oncoming 18 wheeler. The 18 wheeler with trailer attached collided with the white Nissan Altima and both driver and passenger were pronounced dead at the scene.
