Hudspeth County, TX (August 10, 2019) On the morning of August 10th, a deadly car accident happened on U.S. 62/180, about 12 miles away from FM 1111. A 29-year-old man named Gildrado Alberto Gonzalez Andujo was traveling on U.S. 62 when he veered into the opposite lane and crashed head-on with a pickup truck.

When the paramedics arrived at the scene, they found Andujo in his vehicle with fatal injuries. Two other victims, 30-year-old Marcos Enriquez Hernandez and 22-year-old Luis Angel Garcia, sustained serious injuries and were rushed to UMC for immediate treatment.

Head-On Collisions in Texas
Studies show that most head-on collisions are caused by drunk driving and that most drunk driving occurs on weekends between midnight and 6:00 a.m. Sadly, when drivers are under the influence, they are more likely to break traffic laws, speed, and veer into opposite lanes. Because they’re inebriated, they’re unable to drive safely, which puts themselves and everyone around them in danger.
