Reeves County, TX (January 10, 2020) – Just after 1:00 p.m., on January 8th, authorities were called to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 10.
Reports indicate that an eastbound semi-truck crossed the center lines of the roadway and collided with a second vehicle head-on.
A semi-truck that was traveling westbound was unable to stop in time to avoid the collision, which resulted in its striking both vehicles before rolling.
The driver of the second vehicle, who was identified as Wajma Popal, sustained fatal injuries in the collision.
At this time, police are investigating.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of Wajma Popal. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
