Parker County, TX (December 22, 2019) On the 17th of December, a fatal DUI accident happened on Interstate 20 near Mineral Wells. According to reports, a 2019 Ford F-350 pickup truck was traveling westbound on the highway when it failed to yield for construction and rear-ended a 2018 Infinity. As a result, the Infinity rear-ended a 2016 Nissan, which caused the Nissan to rear-end a 2010 Chevrolet Suburban. The accident happened at around 10:30 p.m. near the Ranch House Road exit.
When emergency responders arrived at the crash site, they found the driver of the Infinity, 61-year-old Patricia Lane Ferreiro, and her passenger, 23-year-old Kevin Lane Ferreiro, injured at the scene. The paramedics rushed both of them to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth for treatment. Unfortunately, Kevin did not survive his injuries and died on December 20th at around 2:00 p.m.
The driver of the Nissan, 27-year-old Allyse A. Bowman also sustained injuries and was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.
The police have arrested the Ford pickup driver for two counts of intoxication assault. He has been identified as 26-year-old Juan Antonio Sauceda. He has been transported to the Parker County Jail.
We send our condolences to the family of Kevin Lane Ferreiro. Our thoughts are with them at this time. We also wish Patricia Lane Ferreiro and Allyse A. Bowman a complete recovery.
