Klein sustained fatal injuries in the accident. The other driver was taken into custody on allegations of Intoxicated Manslaughter. Right now, additional details can't be confirmed.

It may surprise some to learn just how often I've been out to the Midland-Odessa area for situations like this involving local establishments that recklessly over-served customers and contributed to a deadly. The Midland-Odessa area has just about the worst rate of intoxicated driving in the whole state, and it's no wonder I so often hear from people who want to see some change in their community.

Right now, it's not clear if police think this was alcohol or drug related, and they also have not mentioned any outside parties being involved. But I do know how much can go unnoticed when investigating an accident like this when authorities only care about filing charges rather than getting a grieving family the answers they deserve. Hopefully authorities out west are taking this seriously and ensuring the full story comes to light so there can be adequate steps taken to ensure there are proper consequences for this senseless loss of life.
