The Howard Police Department has released the name of the victim who died in a deadly vehicle collision on Interstate 20, August 5th, Monday.

According to police reports, the fatality was identified as Luis Pena, 25, of Del Rio.

A preliminary investigation indicates that the incident took place at around 11:40 a.m., just three miles east of Coahoma. Police said that a Ford F-350 pickup truck, driven by a 27-year-old Del Rio man, was heading east on I-20 when its driver lost control of the vehicle after exiting the highway at high speed. The vehicle overturned, leaving serious injuries to its occupants.

A passenger in the pickup truck, Luis Pena, was rushed to Scenic Mountain Medical Center in Big Spring for treatment. Unfortunately, he later succumbed to his injuries.

It was not mentioned in the report if the driver was hurt.

The crash remains under investigation.

We believe that when someone loses a loved one from a car accident, they do not only suffer emotionally but financially as well. If you or your loved one is a victim of a car accident caused by wrongful actions or due to negligence, you may have the right to file for legal claims. Most of the time, families who are left behind after a tragic loss are not aware of their rights and the legal processes needed to obtain fair and just compensation. In times like this, you would need a professional who can provide you with all the support you need as you go through this difficult time. Talk to your personal injury or car accident lawyer for assistance.

According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), car accidents happen almost every minute of the day, and for every 16 minutes, a car accident occurs that results in death. So that is about 6 million car accidents every year and 90 people dying in car accidents every day in the U.S. alone. Despite the government’s aggressive efforts to keep these cases down, Texas remains the worst state in the country for alcohol-involved car crashes.
