Juan Rodriguez Jr. Killed, 2 Injured in Car Accident in Ector County, TX

Ector County, TX -- February 19, 2023, Juan Rodriguez Jr. was killed and two others were injured following a car accident.

Details given by authorities say that the incident happened just before midnight along US Highway 385 in the area of FM 158. Their information says that 23-year-old Juan Rodriguez Jr. and another man were in a Chevy Silverado traveling northbound along the highway. It appears that another Silverado was going the wrong way down northbound lanes, causing the vehicles to collide head-on.

Rodriguez had fatal injuries due to the crash. His passenger had injuries said to be incapacitating while the other driver's injuries were non-incapacitating. Police believe that the wrong-way driver was under the influence of alcohol at the time. This and other details remain unconfirmed at this time.

If further investigations do show that alcohol was involved here, it wouldn't be the least bit surprising. For one, it's a tragically common cause for fatal accidents in general in Texas. In fact, the Odessa-Midland area has one of the worst rates of drunk driving wrecks per capita in the whole state.

After all, someone has to be pretty damn unaware of their surroundings not to catch their mistake before someone gets hurt or killed. That's why crashes like this need to be taken as seriously as possible. Could this be some unusual, freak accident? Of course, but it's far more likely someone out there needs to be held accountable for taking one young man's life and potentially changing another's forever.
