Gabriel Gonzalez Rangel Killed in Single-Vehicle Accident on El Paso Drive in El Paso, TX

El Paso, TX — January 15, 2023, 59-year-old Gabriel Gonzalez Rangel died in a single-vehicle accident on El Paso Drive in south central El Paso.

Authorities say the incident happened shortly before 2:00 a.m. on the 6700 block of El Paso Drive. Preliminary investigation suggests Gonzalez Rangel was driving east on the roadway when he allegedly failed to negotiate a turn. Investigators say they found no tire marks, indicating the victim drove directly into a guard rail and a concrete barrier. His vehicle rebounded through the traffic lanes and then hit a low rock wall in front of a local residence.

Gonzalez Rangel was partially ejected during the accident and suffered fatal injuries.

The investigation continues. No further information is currently available.


Seeing that this incident involved just one vehicle, I can't help but feel a little concerned. In my experience crashes of that nature aren't always treated with an open mind or appropriate care by the public or even in some cases by authorities. Folks are quick to assume the driver did something wrong even though there are many reasons a vehicle can lose control—some of which would have been wholly out of the victim's hands. If conclusions are too quickly reached before all the facts are in, that can be hugely problematic.

At the end of the day what matters is getting the truth for the people that need and deserve it. I suspect the victim's loved ones have many questions about their loss that urgently need answers, so I hope El Paso PD is working diligently to find them.
