Jose Ceniceros Killed, Rosalia Medrano Injured in Crash on Highway 190 in Tyler County, TX

UPDATE (September 29, 2022): The victims of this accident have been identified as 56-year-old Jose Ceniceros, who died after being airlifted to a hospital, and 51-year-old Rosalia Medrano, who underwent surgery for life-threatening injuries.

Tyler County, TX — September 27, 2022, one person died and another was injured in a collision with a tractor-trailer on Highway 190 in Tyler County.

Authorities say the incident happened just after 10:00 p.m. on Highway 190 between Dam B and Woodville. Preliminary investigation suggests a Kenworth truck truck was pulling a log skidder westbound on the highway as a Buick SUV traveled east nearby. According to reports the Buick crossed over the center line and hit the side of the 18-wheeler.

The Buick driver was airlifted to a hospital where they died a short time later; a passenger in the vehicle was taken by ambulance to the same hospital with life-threatening injuries. The truck driver refused treatment at the scene.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Jose Ceniceros, Rosalia Medrano Accident in Tyler County

Reports seem to paint a pretty clear picture of one driver crossing left of center and triggering this crash, but as always I'd say it's best for careful and thorough investigation--and the clear facts that uncovers--to tell the story. Taking preliminary reports as the gospel truth of the matter means ignoring how incomplete they usually are.

For instance, even if the eastbound driver crossed over that still doesn't explain why. A wreck caused by momentary carelessness might look the same as one caused by a sudden and catastrophic mechanical failure in the SUV, for example, but what follows either of those could be very different. That's why it's crucial to eliminate all the guesswork possible and find objective evidence of what really happened.

Of course, getting that evidence and using it to help the people affected may not be as simple as waiting for a police report. Authorities are only looking for broken laws, not necessarily for the facts to help victims and families build a case or get back on their feet. That's why I often recommend enlisting the help of independent experts to find the truth. Armed with the facts those professionals uncover, truck accident victims and their loved ones stand a better chance of seeing justice done and getting back on track.
