Elia Avila Killed, Ricardo Munoz Injured in Car Accident in Kaufman County, TX

Kaufman County, TX -- July 17, 2022, Elia Avila was killed and Ricardo Munoz was injured after an accident where their vehicle overturned.

Initial details given indicate that the crash happened along westbound I-20 near FM 741 at around 4:00 a.m.

It appears that 21-year-old Elia Jasmin Avila and 19-year-old Ricardo Munoz were in a Dodge Ram 1500 traveling along the interstate. It appears that a Toyota Camry in the other lane made an unsafe lane change, hitting the side of Avila's Dodge. This caused the truck to lose control, and it ran off onto the median where it overturned.

Avila sustained fatal injuries due to the crash. Munoz was said to have non-incapacitating injuries. Police did not report any charges or citations. The cause of the crash remains unconfirmed.

Commentary on Elia Avila, Ricardo Munoz Car Accident in Kaufman County

Elia Avila Killed, Ricardo Munoz Injured in Car Accident in Kaufman County, TX

To be blunt, a driver causing a fatal crash this early in the morning is often drunk after a night out at the bar. That may not be what happened here, but it wouldn't be the first time such important details were left out of preliminary statements. Not only could that lead to a driver facing serious consequences, but a local establishment could even be liable for the crash under dram shop law. At the end of the day, someone lost their life here. Were proper steps truly taken to get their family the answers and the help they deserved?
