Authorities have identified the victim who died in a car accident on State Highway 349 last Tuesday.

The victim has been named as 55-year-old Ronald Rincon. He was a San Antonio resident.

Police officers responded to SH 349 eight miles north of Rankin after a receiving a call just after 2:00 p.m. According to initial reports, a 2018 GMC Sierra was traveling along the northbound lanes of the highway when a 2015 Ford F-250 pickup truck veered onto its path causing a collision.

The driver of the first vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene. He was later identified as Ronald Rincon. The pickup truck driver was rushed to Midland Memorial Hospital with serious injuries. He was identified as Carlton Carter, a 51-year-old Odessa resident.

No charges have been filed.

We are deeply saddened for the family and loved ones of the deceased victim. Our prayers and thoughts are with them. We strongly believe that the Upton County Police Department will do everything to bring those responsible to justice.

Texas is among the states in the US that have the most car accidents which involved injuries and fatalities every year. Some of the common factors contributing to the rising cases of collisions in the area include the worsening traffic situation, weather conditions, and poor driving habits.

Bad driving habits are the greatest cause of a fatal crash. It can be lethal to the person behind the wheel, as well as the drivers on the road. Drivers who do not use their signal to change lanes or those who do not secure their blind spots before shifting direction are more likely to be involved in an accident. Some of the most dangerous driving habits include speeding, unsafe lane change, tailgating, and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If you or someone you love has been a victim of a car accident with a negligent driver, you have a right to fair compensation for the trauma you experienced and the injuries you have suffered.
