Midland, TX (July 20, 2019) On the evening of July 19th, a fatal collision happened in the 300 block of North Big Spring Street. An SUV was traveling north on Big Spring Street when it somehow crossed the center divider and collided head-on with another vehicle. The accident happened at around 9:50 p.m.
The Midland Police Department, along with other emergency personnel responded at the scene and found the driver of the SUV dead in his vehicle. He has been identified as Lorenzo Leon. The paramedics tended to the other victims in the other vehicle as well and took those that needed more treatment to the closest hospital.
The police department is still investigating the crash, but they believe alcohol may have been a contributing factor.
Our thoughts are with the family of Lorenzo Leon at this time, along with the other injured victims and their families as well.
Head-On and DUI Accidents in Texas
Often times, driving under the influence is what leads to head-on collisions because it’s easy for incoherent drivers to lose control of their bodies, and then their vehicles. When drivers have blurry vision, and can barely keep their head up, they’re more prone to allowing their vehicle to drift to the opposite lane into oncoming traffic, which often leads to fatalities.
