Sierra Renee Castelan Injured in Car Accident in Harlingen, TX
Harlingen, TX -- June 10, 2022, Sierra Renee Castelan was injured due to an accident where two vehicles had a t-bone collision.
Investigators said that the incident happened at around 7:42 p.m. along I-69E/Expressway 77 in the area of New Hampshire Street.
According to officials, 28-year-old Sierra Castelan was in a Chevy Trax traveling westbound along New Hampshire. At the service road, police say a southbound truck disregarded a red light and slammed into Castelan's vehicle.
As a result, Castelan sustained injuries said to be incapacitating. The other driver wasn't hurt. Details about why that driver went through a red light aren't clear at this time. Finding out why that happened could have drastically different implications for victims and families after a serious wreck like this.
From looking at a cell phone to being intoxicated to outright being reckless to some highly unusual defect with traffic signal, there are a lot of possibilities to consider. Some may not be all that likely, but for someone who was sent to the emergency room, it's not very encouraging to get back home only for police to be empty-handed. Hopefully investigations here were more thorough than what the few publicly available details suggest.
