Fabian Ortega Cruz Injured in Alleged Drunk Driving Accident on F.M. 1854 in Caldwell County, TX

Caldwell County, TX — May 6, 2023, Fabian Ortega Cruz was injured by an allegedly drunk diver around 12:24 a.m. on F.M. 1854 in Caldwell County.

According to officials, the victim's Mazda 3 was driving south while a Nissan Altima was northbound on F.M. 1854, just south of Meyers St., when the two vehicles collided head-on.

The Altima allegedly failed to maintain its lane and drove into the southbound lane. This reportedly forced a third, uninvolved vehicle that was in front of Mr. Cruz's Mazda to suddenly take an evasive maneuver. Mr. Cruz was reportedly unable to react in time leading to the crash.

Fabian Ortega Cruz purportedly suffered incapacitating injuries while the Altima driver suffered minor injuries. Both people were then reportedly transported to a hospital.

Police recommended charging the Nissan Altima driver with Intoxication Assault, however, they have not yet released the toxicology results.
