THREE CARS INVOLVED IN FATAL CRASH
According to troopers with the Texas Department of Public Safety, the fatal car accident involved three vehicles with a total of 12 people on board. The accident report indicates that 49-year-old Kenneth Robinson was traveling south on U.S. Highway 77 in his 2000 Chevrolet SUV, when another car cut in front of him and began to brake, causing him to lose control of his own vehicle. He then traveled into the northbound lanes of the highway, striking a 2013 Ford Mustang, driven by 26-year-old Dariel Carlos. Another vehicle driven by 48-year-old Hector Solis Garza was traveling north on Highway 77 behind the Mustang when the collision took place, and although he tried to take evasive action, Garza was unable to avoid striking the back of Robinson’s vehicle.
