Erasmo Garcia-Cienega Killed in Single-Vehicle Accident on I-10 in Crockett County, TX

Crockett County, TX — January 3, 2023, 44-year-old Erasmo Garcia-Cienega was killed in a single-vehicle accident on Interstate 10 in Crockett County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 9:05 p.m. on I-10 near mile marker 368. Preliminary investigation suggests Garcia-Cienega was driving a Chevy Uplander van east on the highway in the outside lane when he entered a right-hand curve. He allegedly failed to negotiate the curve and veered off the road to the left, then over-corrected and side-skidded back to the right. The van left the road to the south, passed through Exit Ramp 368, then ran through a ditch and crashed head-on into a stone wall where it came to rest.

Garcia-Cienega was fatally injured in the crash.

No further information is currently available.

In my experience people are unfortunately pretty quick to write single-vehicle accidents like this off as the driver's fault, but they rarely consider all the ways things could be more complex. Anything from poor road conditions to medical emergencies to vehicle failures or defects could send someone off-course like this, and people would be stunned to learn how often safety features like seat belts and airbags malfunction and make a crash victim's injuries go from bad to much worse.

Is it possible this accident has a simple explanation? Maybe. Could there also be more to the story? Absolutely. All else aside the loss of a man's life is more than enough reason to be sure his loved ones get the whole truth. I hope that's what authorities brought them.
