Gerardo Castillo Ulloa Killed in Alleged Intoxicated Driving Accident in Hidalgo County, TX
Hidalgo County, TX — July 2, 2023, Gerardo Castillo Ulloa was killed as the result of an alleged intoxicated driver accident at around 4:27 a.m. along F.M. 907.
According to initial statements about the fatal incident, it happened at the intersection of F.M. 907 and Wisconsin Road in the area of Weslaco.
Officials said that 50-year-old Gerardo Castillo Ulloa was on foot at the time and was apparently attempting to cross F.M. 907 walking eastbound on Wisconsin. While doing so, however, it appears that a GMC Sierra going northbound struck Ulloa in the crosswalk. The pickup continued driving and left the scene, police say, but was later located.
As a result of the collision, Ulloa sustained injuries which ultimately proved to be fatal. The driver of the pickup, unidentified at this time, allegedly had a BAC over the legal limit following the accident. Authorities recommended charges against that driver for intoxication manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid resulting in death. No further information can be confirmed at this time.
