El Paso, TX -- November 20, 2022, Marisela Garza, Guillermo Olivares, Rubi Cardona Duaerte, and another were injured in a car accident.
Preliminary details about the crash show that it happened along Zaragoza near Montwood just before midnight.
It appears that 25-year-old Guillermo Olivares and 25-year-old Rubi Cardona Duaerte were in a Lexus traveling northbound on Zaragoza. Due to events unconfirmed at this time, their vehicle crashed with a Ford Focus said to be driven by a 24-year-old man. The Lexus then veered into oncoming lanes and hit another Ford Focus driven by 57-year-old Marisela Garza.
Olivares was said to have incapacitating injuries due to the crash while all other injuries were described as non-incapacitating. Right now, the possible cause of the crash requires more thorough investigations.
Commentary on Marisela Garza, Guillermo Olivares, Rubi Cardona Duaerte Car Accident in El Paso
After serious multi-vehicle wrecks like this, things can become a messy blame-fest of sorts as all kinds of involved parties--the drivers, insurance companies, potential employers--all fight to avoid responsibility. It's one of the reasons I use this blog to adamantly discuss the importance of thorough independent investigations.
Even in some common factors, there can be issues authorities alone aren't used to handling. What if someone on their phone was required to text their employer, like a case I handled a while back? What if a drunk driver was over-served by a bar who is then liable for their role in the crash? What if someone running a light did so because the light malfunctioned?
Likely or not, the goal should be to let the evidence speak for itself. When authorities alone are rarely equipped to handle all of these possibilities, that evidence can slip through the cracks. That's why victims and families who seek out independent professionals are generally the ones that get the answers they need. Were those steps taken here?
