Ruben Vazquez Killed in Pedestrian-Car Accident on I-35W in Fort Worth, TX

Fort Worth, TX — August 27, 2023, Ruben Vazquez was killed in a crash around 12:29 a.m. after stepping out of his vehicle due to an unrelated accident on I-35 NB in Fort Worth.

Officials report two vehicles collided while traveling north in the 4200 block of I-35 (a.k.a. South Freeway). After the initial accident involving Ruben Vazquez, a second crash reportedly occurred in the southbound lanes of the highway.

According to investigators, a southbound Dodge Grand Caravan attempted to avoid colliding with the second crash and allegedly crossed over the concrete barrier separating the highway's directions. The Dodge was then purportedly a wrong-way vehicle when it struck Mr. Vazquez on the northbound side of the highway. Ruben Vazquez, 60, was purportedly outside of his vehicle when he was struck by the Dodge.

First responders reportedly took the victim to a medical center but Mr. Vazquez ultimately passed away from the injuries sustained in the collision with the Dodge. All five occupants in the Dodge were reportedly unharmed.

Reports indicate authorities have not released what caused Mr. Vazquez's first crash or how the Dodge managed to get over the concrete barrier.
