Marcos Costilla Killed in Single-Vehicle Accident in Kaufman County, TX

Kaufman County, TX -- July 22, 2022, Marcos Costilla was killed due to an accident where his vehicle crashed off the roadway.

Authorities said that the incident happened at around 6:26 a.m. along US Highway 175 near the intersection of FM 2860.

It appears that 18-year-old Marcos Costilla was in a Chrysler 200 traveling westbound along the highway. For reasons which can't be confirmed at this time, the vehicle went off the left side of the road and crashed along the median.

As a result of the crash, Costilla sustained fatal injuries. Reports did not list anyone else being involved in the wreck.

Beyond what's currently available in the public already, I haven't seen this awful event get much attention. My concern with that is always that the lack of attention could be due to the driver's age. I talk about single vehicle wrecks all the time and the countless possible factors which can cause an accident that drivers have little or no control over. Yet when people see a teenager behind the wheel, they think that all goes out the window. Why?

A teenager may be statistically more likely to make a mistake in a vehicle, but victims like this young man aren't statistics; they're someone's kid. Instead of jumping to conclusions, why don't people allow investigators to do their jobs and get the facts? I know that's what I would want in the unthinkable event one of my kids was in a serious accident. Hopefully authorities who handled this incident felt the same.
