Corpus Christi, TX – Jacob Salinas Killed In Crash On Everhart Road
Corpus Christi, TX (April 9, 2019) – On Sunday, April 7, just after 3 a.m., Corpus Christi Police responded to the scene of a collision at Everhart and Holly Roads.
According to reports, 21-year-old Jacob Salinas was traveling at a high rate of speed when he ran through a red light at the intersection and collided with another vehicle. The impact of the collision caused Salinas’s vehicle to spin out of control before hitting a third vehicle passing through the intersection.
Salinas was ejected from his vehicle and sustained serious blunt force trauma to the head. He was pronounced deceased at the scene of the collision. Although the incident remains under investigation, police believe speeding, alcohol, and failing to give the right of way, may have all played a crucial role in this collision. No other victims involved were seriously injured.
Our deepest condolences go out to the Salinas family as they deal with the very tragic loss of their loved one.
