Keene, TX – 2 Killed in N Old Betsy Rd (FM 2280) Crash ID’d

Keene, TX (December 5, 2019) – On Friday, November 29, authorities responded to the scene of a major motor vehicle accident on Farm to Market Road 2280.

For whatever reason, Davila attempted to pass the vehicle in a no-passing zone, entering into the northbound lane. As Davila crossed over, his vehicle struck the Ford head-on.

Juarez and Martinez both incurred fatal injuries and were declared deceased at the scene.

The driver of the Ford, who was identified as 39-year-old Roberto Martinez incurred serious injuries and was rushed to Parkland Memorial Hospital. Four other occupants of the ford were also injured. These individuals were identified as 45-year-old Maria Guadalupe Martinez, 19-year-old Maria Martinez, and a 15-year-old and 3-year old female.
