Pedro Reyes Killed in Truck Accident on Military Highway in Los Indios, TX

Los Indios, TX — January 11, 2023, 67-year-old Pedro Reyes died in a collision with a tractor-trailer on Military Highway in Los Indios.

Authorities say the incident happened on the highway (US-281) near Rangerville Road. Preliminary investigation suggests only that Reyes was driving a Nissan Altima when he somehow collided with an 18-wheeler on the roadway. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The cause and circumstances of the crash remain under investigation.

No further information is currently available.

Folks fortunate enough not to lose loved ones in a traffic accident don't always realize that the worst part is often the mystery surrounding it. The people who lost a loved on in this terrible incident no doubt have countless questions (including why crash scene photos seemingly show the big rig on the wrong side of the road), and finding them answers should be a top priority.

So how did this happen? Did one of the drivers lose control somehow, or was the collision due to circumstances beyond either person's control—like a vehicle malfunction or poor road conditions? How fast were both vehicles traveling? Were they next to each other or was one following the other? Were both in good repair? Were the drivers awake, alert, and focused on the road? Could someone have suffered a medical emergency?

Those and dozens of other details must be carefully investigated and clarified for the sake of the people stuck wondering how and why they lost a loved one. I hope authorities will take the time and care needed to connect every dot and ensure the picture they make is clear.
